John Buridan's Questions on Aristotle's De Anima (On the Soul): A Critical Edition with an Annotated Translation

Preparation for publication of three bilingual Latin-English volumes of an annotated critical edition and translation of John Buridan's Questions on Aristotle's De Anima, with a fourth volume of expository and interpretive essays. (24 months)

A critical edition and annotated English translation of John Buridan's Questions on Aristotle's De Anima (QDA, for short) in three volumes, to be prepared by an international group of scholars. The proposed volumes, containing the critical edition of the Latin text and the annotated English translation on facing pages, will be published by Fordham University Press, in the new series Medieval Philosophy: Texts and Studies, edited by the project director, Gyula Klima. The impact of Buridan's logic and cognitive psychology was enormous in his time. Bridging the linguistic and conceptual gap between his time and ours, the proposed volumes will allow Buridan's ideas to have their impact on contemporary philosophical discussion concerning such fundamental issues as the nature of the human mind, its relation to the human body, and the proper analysis of its basic cognitive functions, such as perception, memory and understanding.
