John Marenbon will give his inaugural lecture as Honorary Professor of Medieval Philosophy in Cambridge. He shall argue against the usual chronological division, according to which there was a period of ‘medieval philosophy’ corresponding roughly to the Middle Ages. Using as his basis an argument about why studying antiquated philosophy is valuable, he shall also explain why such a question about chronological divisions is important, even for philosophers.
