By Sandra Visser,Thomas Williams

Sandra Visser and Thomas Williams supply a quick, available creation to the existence and regarded Saint Anselm (c. 1033-1109). Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury for the final 16 years of his existence, is likely one of the superior philosopher-theologians of the center a while. His willing and rigorous considering earned him the identify "The Father of Scholasticism," and his effect is discernible in figures as numerous as Thomas Aquinas, John Duns Scotus, the voluntarists of the late-thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, and the Protestant reformers.
In half I of this ebook, Visser and Williams lay out the framework of Anselm's idea: his method of what he calls "the cause of faith," his account of idea and language, and his thought of fact. half II makes a speciality of Anselm's account of God and the divine attributes, and it exhibits how Anselm applies his idea of language and proposal to strengthen a theological semantics that without delay respects divine transcendence and permits the opportunity of divine rational wisdom. partially III, Visser and Williams flip from the heavenly to the animal. They elucidate Anselm's thought of modality and his figuring out of unfastened selection, an idea that used to be, for Anselm, embedded in his belief of justice. The e-book concludes with a dialogue of Incarnation, Atonement, and unique sin, because the authors learn Anselm's argument that the dying of a God-man is the single attainable treatment for human injustice.
