Instable Certainty (Topoi Plus-6)

Like their ancient predecessors, medieval philosophers were interested in the stability of cognitive objects. They paid particular attention to the presence of one’s own soul, which they took to be a stable substance, and contrasted it with the presence of changing material objects. It is therefore important to assess their theories of self-knowledge and to look at the way they explained both the soul itself and the cognitive access we have to it.
