Does not use the bible as his proof! Blows the lid off the way religious philosophers start talking about the way God exists New way of intellectually arguing in which logic replaces the Bible’s authority – new sense of scholasticism – Now in an age of reason! Old way to prove an argument was to pile on as many scriptiual quotations as possible, and the more you had the stronger your argument Yet still remains an age of faith – “Faith Seeking Understanding ” – I believe so that I can understand. Belief and faith are still the foundation that knowledge can be built on But using the tools of logic to prove your point ins enhanced by a rediscovery of Aristotle by Latin Christian thinkers Between 350-and 900, Persian scholars translated Aristotle into Arabic o Avicenna (Ibn-Sina) (980-1037) – interested in trying to understand relationship between things that actually exist in the world and things that can only ecist in the mindl; becomes very influential in West o Averroes (Ibn Rushd) – Islamic Spaniard (1126-1198) – from Cortiba – goal to understand what kinds of truths can be acquired by reason and what kinds required divine revalations; wrote many commentaries on Aristotle o Maimonides (Moses ben Maximon) – Jewish Spaniard – from Cortiba (1135-1204)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
