Medieval and Early Modern Philosophy

Medieval and Early Modern Philosophy

Herausgegeben von Julia Jorati, Dominik Perler, Stephan Schmid

The book series Medieval and Early Modern Philosophy (MEMP) is committed to publishing first-rate scholarly work on philosophical thought from the 12th century to the end of the 18th century. It deliberately adopts the view that the development from medieval to early modern thought was primarily shaped by continuities and gradual changes rather than ruptures and revolutions. The series is broad in its thematic outlook in that it accepts contributions on thinkers from various religious and non-religious traditions. It encourages innovative scholarship that opens up new perspectives on canonical authors as well as investigations into the work of less known figures, including women philosophers.

The distinguished editors of the series (see below) assure high quality of the publications in the series. All book proposals are peer-reviewed. The series speaks to an international audience and accepts contributions in English, German and French. The multilinguality of the series represents the view that multifarious linguistic competency is essential to high-quality research on the period. Apart from research monographs, thematic edited volumes and commented translations are welcome to be included in the series.
