The Metalogicon by John Salisbury
"So, John is a bit sprawling. The foundational ideas camping out amidst all the bits and pieces are important, though. This is an early critique of Scholasticism, just at the point that Scholasticism is getting ready to take off and become the meth..." Read more of this review »
