Round 98: Medieval Philosophy
A look into the thoughts of the dark ages. What was going on in the heads of thinkers behind closed draw bridges and moats? “Medieval philosophy is a term used to refer to the philosophy that existed through the Middle Ages, the period roughly extending from the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century to the Renaissance in the 15th century.[1] Medieval philosophy, understood as a project of independent philosophical inquiry, began in Baghdad, in the middle of the 8th century,[1] and in France, in the itinerant court of Charlemagne, in the last quarter of the 8th century.[1][2] It is defined partly by the process of rediscovering the ancient culture developed in Greece and Rome during the Classical period,[1] and partly by the need to address theological problems and to integrate sacred doctrine with secular learning.” Anthony Kenny discussing Medieval Philosophy on Bryan Magee’s BBC Show:

    What we're about

    Creating a space for minds to gather and work to throw-down prejudice and preconception. Too often we act out of habit, this group should encourage reflection and review of why we act and think the ways that we do, grow understanding, and encourage all humans to feel comfortable and competent discussing philosophic and ethical issues.
