Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Brown (advanced graduate student, Irish-Scottish studies) and Harrison (archaeologist, Dublin Excavations Publication project) were also the organizers of the graduate student conference at Trinity College in 1999, from which these papers come. Written by young academics, and somewhat uneven in quality, these papers cover material of particular interest to specialists in Irish thought. Divided into "Reason" and "Community", the papers consider the influence of medieval writers on later thinkers, including: Descartes and Michael Moore, St Augustine and Beckett, and Aristotle and Eco. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
