Part of the Studies in the History of Philosophy of Mind book series (SHPM, volume 15)


The purpose of this book is to examine the nexus between the corporeal, emotional, spiritual and intellectual aspects of human life as represented in the writing of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance over two thousand years of Western thought, from Plato in the fifth century BC and the fourth century AD Byzantine dialogues on the soul, to the philosophical and medical writings of the early 1700s.
