The philosophical doctrines in Tertullian's De Anima.
Bedau, Hugo Adam
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis is an attempt to examine the treatise De Anima written by Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus circa A. D. 210. Special attention is paid to the sources for his doctrines, both Christian and non-Christian, as well as the influences this treatise had on later medieval thought. The systematic presentation of Tertullian's views is not construed to mean that Tertullian produced a really systematic philosophy in De Anima. One thread runs continuously through the thesis, namely, the problem of faith and intellect, revelation and reason, which occurs in every context and influences the actual philosophical positions adopted by Tertullian.
