Lecture/discussion on the contributions made to society before the 14th century by the great philosophers: Augustine, Boethius, Anselm, Abelard, Bonaventure, Aquinas,  Maimonides, and Ockham and how these philosophers were influenced by Plato or Aristotle. We will discuss the intermingling of faith and reason and how this past dialogue informs our present way of viewing and coping with our world.
