More anthology than textbook: A must-have for anyone interested in the development of modern Western thought, this book is chock-full of selections from a wide variety of primary sources. Take your pick from the heavy-hitters: Augustine, Boethius, Erigena, Anselm (with Gaunilo), Abelard, John of Salisbury, al-Farabi, Avicenna, al-Gazali, Averroes, Sa'adia, Solomon Ibn Gabirol, Maimonides, Bonaventure, Grosseteste, Bacon, Siger of Brabant, Aquinas (Spiriual Creatures, Summa Part I, II [first part], and the text of the 1277 condemnation), Scotus, William od Ockham, Nicholas of Autrecourt, Marsilius of Padua, and John Buridan (on Aristotle). Good stuff.
