Étienne Gilson (1884–1978) was a French philosopher and historian of philosophy and one of the premier Catholic intellectuals of the twentieth century. Over the course of his illustrious career, he founded the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto, was elected to the Académie française, and wrote over one hundred and seventy books.
Gilson’s overview of each of the Church’s great philosophers are indispensable! Great works to give you a working knowledge of the Church’s philosophical tradition. Another fantastic addition to Tumblar House by Vincent! What a guy!
I had never heard of Gilson previously but he is an excellent philosopher. This book claims to be an introduction but it very much goes into depth and should be read carefully. It could be read several times over profitably. I intend to read other books by this author as well
