Robert Kilwardby (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Archbishop of Canterbury from 1272 until his death in 1279, the Dominican friar Robert Kildwardby has long been known primarily for his participation in the Oxford Prohibitions of 1277, but his contributions spread far wider. A central figure in the Late Middle Ages, Kilwardby was one of the earliest commentators of the work of Aristotle, as well as an unwavering proponent of Augustinian thought and a believer of the plurality of forms. Although he was a prominent

thinker of the time, key areas of his philosophical thought remain unexamined in contemporary scholarship.

Jose Filipe Silva here offers the first book-length analysis of Kilwardby's full body of work, which is essential in understanding both the reception of Aristotle in the Latin West and the developments of later medieval philosophy. Beginning with his early philosophical commitments, Silva tracks Kilwardby's life and academic thought, including his theories on knowledge, moral happiness, and the nature of the soul, along with his attempts to reconcile Augustinian and Aristotelian thought.

Ultimately, Robert Kilwardby offers a comprehensive overview of an unsung scholar, solidifying his philosophical legacy as one of the most influential authors of the Late Middle Ages.

Jose Filipe Silva is Professor of Medieval Philosophy at the University of Helsinki. He is the Director of the ERC research project Rationality in Perception: Transformations of Mind and Cognition 1250-1550, and the author of Robert Kilwardby on the Human Soul: Plurality of Forms and Censorship in the Thirteenth Century.
