Cognitive Psychology in Early Jesuit Scholasticism

Daniel Heider (ed.)

Jesuit scholastic philosophy exemplified by the figure of Francisco Suárez (1548–1617) is at present a topic intensively studied worldwide. However, especially in the English speaking academic world, the immediate histori­cal milieu of Suárez's philosophy and theology, constituted especially by the philosophical and theological production of his Jesuit contemporaries, is much less taken into account. In the field of philosophical cognitive psychology, extant especially in the commentaries on Aristotle's On the Soul, the present publication aims to partially ameliorate this status quo. All the chapters in this book to some extent give evidence of the theological motivation and theological horizon of the Jesuit cognitive psychology of the last decades of the 16th century and the first decades of the 17th century.
