KIRKUS REVIEW

After all the talk of modern philosophy it is somewhat refreshing to come upon The Spirit of Mediaeval Philosophy. The author is one of the greatest living philosophers, a Frenchman and therefore, to me at least, especially adapted by temperament and training to deal with this difficult subject. These lectures formed the Gifford Lectures for 1931-1932 at Aberdeen and are of wide importance to all scientist, philosophers, clergymen and the large group that eagerly await the publication of the lectures from year to year. In the author's own words the conclusion of the lectures is: ""The produced besides a Christian literature and art, as everyone admits, this very philosophy which is a matter of dispute"".
