What to expect when you're expecting medieval philosophy

Posted on ..

Here is a tentative list of episodes (not counting interviews) for the upcoming series on early medieval philosophy. These will only take the story up to the 12th century or so, prior to the rise of the universities (so don't panic that, say, Aquinas or Scotus aren't on the list, they come later). Comments welcome!

These will kick off starting with episode 196; something special is planned for episode 200!
