The Middle Ages were exciting times, from the point of view of philosophy. There was a lot of development in the subject as the ideas of the great thinkers of Greece and Rome …were compared, contrasted, and integrated with the new ideas brought in from Arabia and Persia by Islamic peoples ref.: An Introduction to Classical Islamic Philosophy Anselm, convinced about the power of the intellect,� carried on Augustine�s strategy of� �faith seeking understanding� and relied on inner mediation, thinking that once he obtained the right attitude, he could be illuminated by reason�s ability.� Anselm�s tie to Aristotle comes through the chain of commentaries from Porphyry and Boethius.� The philosophers commanded Anselm�s respect, but he felt they did not attain the whole truth because they were not quite in the right frame of mind to receive �truth properly.� Anselm adopted realism in that the genera and species would not disappear if you took them away from all their instances.� Universals, then, are in the mind and the universe, and particulars merely participate in them.� For example, each instance of horse has the whole universal, horseness, in it.� Anselm picked up where Augustine left off with the �great chain of being�, in that ontologically, some things have more being than others, until you get to evil, which is non-being.� The biggest being for Anselm was being all by itself - i.e., God is just being: that-than-which-nothing-greater-can-be-conceived.� Anselm could therefore prove God�s existence ontologically, since His being is a necessity, and because a necessary being is better than one merely contingent.� Anselm held that God must have both aspects, to be in idea and reality.� With this concept, existence is a predicate, a property, and a perfection, which is assumed when you say �more being than others�.� This ontological argument falls apart if you take these assumptions away.� (6, Mar. 9) Aristotle�s works were initially lost, but found again and were preserved in the Greek speaking world.� When Islam took over a large part of the world, scholars translated Aristotle into Arabic and many thought Aristotle was �telling the truth�, which was inconsistent with the teachings of Islam.� Many tried to make them come together.� Averroes explained the important roles of reason and the philosophers:�� �The Law makes philosophic studies obligatory.. .. we are under an obligation to carry on our study of beings by intellectual reasoning.. . epub.

[Thoughts, 325] Contrary to Montaigne, Pascal contends that custom is not the source of morality, and people only follow custom because they think it is moral. ����������� At the same time, though, Pascal was quite skeptical about the value of human reason in general: �There is nothing so conformable to reason as this disavowal of reason� (ibid 173). �Reason, he argues, is grounded in feelings and, as such, it is changeable and can offer us no consistent rule of guidance ref.: The Visible and Invisible in Pianoforte Technique, Being a Digest of the Author's Technical Teachings Up to Date What is the difference between categorematic and syncategorematic terms?
