    Complexity and Unity: Peter of John Olivi and Henry of Ghent on the composition of the soul.Dominik Perler & Can Laurens Löwe - 2022 - Recherches de Theologie Et Philosophie Medievales 89 (2):335-392.
    All Aristotelians subscribed to the thesis that the soul as the principle of life has many powers. But how are the powers related to the soul’s essence? It has often been argued that medieval philosophers gave two answers to this ques- tion: some took them to be necessary accidents that are distinct from the soul’s essence, whereas others simply identified them with the essence. This paper intends to show that there were alternatives to these two standard models. Peter of John (...)

    Miskawayh on Animals.Peter Adamson - 2022 - Recherches de Theologie Et Philosophie Medievales 89 (1):1-24.
    Drawing on all the extant philosophical works of Miskawayh, including his well known Refinement of Character, this paper aims to determine his attitudes towards the psychological capacities and moral standing of non-human animals. Miskawayh most often mentions animals as a contrast to the rationality of humans, but also grants animals likenesses or lesser versions of typically human traits like virtues and friendship. It is argued that for Miskawayh, the teleological design of animals gives humans reasons to show them justice.

    The Influence of the Stars on Women.Marialucrezia Leone - 2022 - Recherches de Theologie Et Philosophie Medievales 89 (1):25-50.
    Thomas Aquinas seems to suggest, though implicitly, that in their ethical conduct the majority of women is much more conditioned by the movements of the stars than men. Although he frequently maintains that the stars solely move the body of all human beings (men and women alike), not the rational powers of their souls, they may have an impact on the human soul indirectly and occasionally ( indirecte et occasionaliter ). Only a few, to wit, the wise (i.e., those who (...)

    Peter de Trabibus on Creation and the Trinity.Tuomas Vaura - 2022 - Recherches de Theologie Et Philosophie Medievales 89 (1):145-195.
    This article studies question 1 of the Quaestiones disputatae found in the manuscript Florence, Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale, Conv. Soppr., D. 6. 359. I argue that Peter de Trabibus is the author of this interesting text. In addition, I show that the question exemplifies an exceptional view about the creation and the Trinity in late 13th-century discussions.
