Self-knowledge is often notion to became an issue of great philosophical inquiry throughout the early sleek interval. Already within the 13th century, even though, the medieval philosopher Thomas Aquinas constructed a worldly conception of self-knowledge, which Therese Scarpelli Cory offers as a undertaking of reconciling the conflicting phenomena of self-opacity and privileged self-access. Situating Aquinas's conception in the mid-thirteenth-century debate and his personal maturing proposal on human nature, Cory investigates the types of self-knowledge that Aquinas describes and the questions they bring up. She exhibits that to some extent extraordinary in a medieval philosopher, self-knowledge seems to be significant to Aquinas's account of cognition and personhood, and that his concept presents instruments for contemplating intentionality, reflexivity and selfhood. Her attractive account of this missed element of medieval philosophy will curiosity readers learning Aquinas and the historical past of medieval philosophy extra generally.
