• Roger Bacon and the Sciences : Commemorative Essays Hackett 1997 Studien und Texte zur Geistesgeschichte des Mittelalters , Vol. 57 ( Serie ) Leiden; Boston : BRILL 9789004444812 | 9789004100152 | BRILL9789004444812 Abstract

    This volume deals with the philosophy and thought of Roger Bacon. It is an effort to bring Roger Bacon studies up to date. Attention is given to a wide range of topics: Bacon's life and works, Bacon's contribution to the trivium (language studies) and the quadrivium (scientific-mathematical studies), his notion of a science, his moral philosophy, Bacon's contribution to medicine, alchemy, astrology, Bacon's positions in physics and metaphysics, an up dated bibliography of Bacon studies and a review of the state of Bacon Manuscripts. The volume situates Roger Bacon in the context of 13th century philosophy and thought, as well as demonstrating his importance for later thinkers. It is expected that it will be a major new contribution to Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
