Reason and Society in the Middle AgesBook - 1985
The Middle Ages are remembered as an age of faith; but they were also an age of reason. This book concentrates on the 250 years between the late 11th and early 14th centuries and studies two key facets of the rationalistic tradition: mathematics, and the broader current represented by a literary education. The final section considers ascetic monasticism, a notably non-rationalistic tradition.
