  1. Antoine Côté (2014). Siger, Avicenna, and Albert the Great on Universals and Natures. Bochumer Philosophisches Jahrbuch Fur Antike Und Mittelalter 17 (1):99-122.
    This paper examines Siger of Brabant’s doctrine of universals in light of Siger’s critical discussion of two highly influential philosophers on the issue of universals in the Middle Ages, Avicenna and Albert the Great. Although Siger unequivocally rejects Albert’s views on universals – rightly so, given Albert’s commitment to a rather robust form of realism –, he is far less hostile to Avicenna’s ideas on the subject than he is to Albert’s. The paper examines Siger’s contrasting attitudes to both authors, (...)

  3. Günter Gawlick (2014). Zwei Stimmen aus der Renaissancedebatte um die Person Ciceros. Bochumer Philosophisches Jahrbuch Fur Antike Und Mittelalter 17 (1):150-165.
    In his essay the author draws attention to two 16th century humanists who engaged in the debate on Cicero the Man . In 1534, Ortensio Lando , a man of letters, published Cicero relegatus & Cicero revocatus, which was a collection of objections to Cicero’s character and habits brought forward in an imaginary conversation, as well as of arguments in his defence proposed in an equally fictitious public hearing, thus producing an apparent equilibrium. Lando, however, did not leave us guessing (...)

  4. Edit Anna Lukacs (2014). Bradwardine and Buckingham on the Extramundane Void. Bochumer Philosophisches Jahrbuch Fur Antike Und Mittelalter 17 (1):123-149.
    In the corollaries to Book I, Chapter 5 of De causa Dei, Thomas Bradwardine assumes the existence of an actual, infinite, God-filled extramundane void. Thomas Buckingham, Bradwardine’s former student, develops in the unedited Question 23 of his Quaestiones theologicae a rejection of the void’s existence precisely in opposition to the theory of his master. His argumentation is not only remarkable in its own; it also allows us to reassess essential concepts from Bradwardine’s De causa Dei, such as divine power, causality (...)

    Mysticism played an important role in the works of Schelling, not only after 1806, that is not only after he went to Munich and came into contact with Franz von Baader, but already at the beginning of his literary career in the 1790s. It seems that he already knows Meister Eckhart’s German Sermons in 1795, namely as he writes the Philosophical Letters on Dogmatism and Criticism , because he uses the concepts ‘grundlos’ and ‘unmittelbar’ in a way we also find (...)

  6. Michael Rasche (2014). Kontiguität und Similarität der poetischen Sprache der Antike. Bochumer Philosophisches Jahrbuch Fur Antike Und Mittelalter 17 (1):1-26.
    Cassirer proclaimed the human as ‘animal symbolicum’. Language, art and religion are manifestations of an symbolic and symbol-creating awareness. The symbols are caused by a movement which is to be characterized as tropical. A symbol can be generated as a metonymic term, based on the principle of contiguity, but also as an metaphoric term, corresponding to the principle of similarity. The perception of these tropical movements draws the attention to the origination of a symbolic term as well as to the (...)

  7. Stefan Schick (2014). Philosophiekritik als Aufklärung?: Die ,,kritische“ Rationalitätskonzeption al-Ġazālīs. Bochumer Philosophisches Jahrbuch Fur Antike Und Mittelalter 17 (1):48-84.
    Some contemporary readings of Averroes put special emphasis on the philosophical and critical character of the work of the Muslim theologian and mystic al-Ġazālī, who is also known as the “Proof of Islam”. They even regard him as some pioneer of Enlightenment thought. This paper therefore investigates the thesis of Averroes as a critical philosopher. It sets forth that one can indeed find some essential elements of critical thought in al-Ġazālī’s writings: for example Ġazālī’s critique of reason and especially his (...)

    This paper attempts at showing the basic principles according to which the Neoplatonist philosopher Proclus formulated his theory on time. The argumentation basically focuses on his methodology, since whatever is included in this analysis is used by the Neoplatonist philosopher in almost all his references to the notion of time. His basic position is that time is not simply a cosmological factor, but possesses properties which connect it closely with the metaphysical world. Also, that it is essential to examine its (...)

    Was the Byzantine thinker Nicephorus Blemmydes directly influenced in his views about human “proairesis” by the Stoic Epictetus or did he take over his views from the Neoplatonic Simplicius? After exploring Blemmydes’ reception of Epictetus, one can say that Blemmydes drew elements in a brief treatise under the title “De virtute et ascesi” from the mainly Neoplatonic Simplicius, who commented on the handbook by the Stoic Epictetus . Blemmydes, following Simplicius identifies “φ’ μν” with “aftexousion” and he designates “proairesis” as (...)
