Arthur Hyman, James J. Walsh, Thomas Williams, Philosophy in the Middle Ages: The Christian, Islamic, and Jewish Traditions, Third edition (Indianapolis: Hackett Publishing Company, Inc., 2010). Since the appearance of its first edition in 1967, this work has become a classic. Indeed, it is now the most widely used compendium of writings in the Christian, Islamic, and Jewish medieval philosophical traditions. It presents excerpts from, and analysis of, the works of the most influential philosophers in the three faith traditions, including Augustine, Boethius, Anselm, Abelard and Aquinas; Alfarabi, Alghazali, and Avicenna; Ibn Gabirol, Maimonides, and Saadia. The third edition builds on the strengths of the second by preserving its essential shape while adding several important new texts from authors such as Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, Bonaventure, and John Duns Scotus.
