Europe, Byzantium, and the "Intellectual Silence" of Rus' Culture, Hardback Book

Europe, Byzantium, and the "Intellectual Silence" of Rus' Culture Hardback

Part of the Beyond Medieval Europe series

Description

This book sets out to answer the question of why Eastern Church writers showed no interest in analytical reasoning - the so-called "intellectual silence" of Rus' culture - while Western Church writers, by the time of the Scholastics, routinely incorporated analytical reasoning into their defences of the faith. Donald Ostrowski suggests that Western, post-Enlightenment- trained, analytical scholars often miss the point, not because of an inability to comprehend cultural ideas which seem abstract and ineffable, but because the agenda is different.
