This volume offers a wide-ranging and profound collection of essays on philosophical psychology and conceptions of modality from antiquity to the present day, with some essays on the philosophy of religion as well.The contributions deal with mind's cognitive and emotional functions, the modal notions and the philosophical approaches to religion as well as logical, semantic and epistemological issues concerning them. Of twenty-one contributions, six focus on ancient thought, nine on medieval thought, and six on modern and contemporary thought.The book illustrates how philosophical theories of mind and modalities developed through the centuries in western philosophy. It is particularly useful for those interested in the analysis of emotions, their cognitive bearing and ethical significance.CONTENTSThe "morality of pity": Sophocles' Philoctetes and the European stoics Aristotle's desire Ta Meta Ta Metaphysika: the argumentative structure of Aristotle's metaphysics Aristotle and Alexander of Aphrodisias on the active intellect Plotinus on thinking oneself and the first-person The autonomy of religion in ancient philosophy Future contingents in the eleventh century Mind and modal judgement: Al-Ghazali and Ibn Rushd on conceivability and possibility By necessity Types of self-awareness in medieval thought Mental disorders in late medieval philosophy and theology Wisdom as intellectual virtue: Aquinas, Odonis and Buridan John Buridan and the mathematical demonstration What is singular thought?: Ockham and Buridan on singular terms in the language of thought Fact, fiction, and fantasy: Luther and the medieval De Anima tradition of imagination Necessity, immutability, and Descartes Spinoza and Hume on pride and self-knowledge The community of minds as a problem of modern philosophy: Descartes, Leibniz, Kant Varieties of philosophical theology before and after Kant Symbol meaning and logical form: a study in the semantics of religious language Cognition and emotion
