Asimismo, presta una atención preferente a los problemas metodológicos y a los angeles variada historiografía de este período, en especial a las fuentes literarias e históricas disponibles. Lejos de todo dogmatismo y desprovista de cualquier tentación apologética, l. a. propuesta que encierra este libro radica en l. a. lectura de los textos filosóficos medievales mediante los instrumentos filológicos necesarios y en su interpretación con el más depurado método hermenéutico.
Incluye herramientas de los angeles net para el estudio de los angeles filosofía medieval.
