Project Details


The project aims at offering a systematic study of late medieval theories of perception, focusing on the relation between the senses and intellect and to retrace the shift in late medieval philosophy of perception that led to (a) a progressive questioning of direct realism in cognition and (b) the incremental reduction of all psychological functions to the mind.
