« back to classes page
In the 12th century a spark was lighted that would produce a vast shift in the West toward analytic and scientific thinking, and ultimately would be a major force in the emergence of the renaissance and enlightenment. This course recounts the story of that shift, and introduces the three of the greatest minds in this remarkable story: Averroes, a Muslim; Maimonides, a Jew; and Aquinas, a Christian. In heavily illustrated PowerPoint presentations, Dr. Gray introduces this great philosophical tradition in a manner understandable whether the student has formally studied philosophy or not. The two-hour lectures have a break midway and a half hour discussion period at the end.
