Questions concerning Aristotle's On animals by Albertus ( )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This text, the Questions concerning Aristotle's On Animals [Quaestiones super de animalibus], recovered only at the beginning of the twentieth century and never before translated in its entirety, represents Conrad of Austria's report on a series of disputed questions that Albert the Great addressed in Cologne ca. 1258. The Questions, in nineteen books, mixes two distinct genres: the scholastic quaestio, with arguments pro et contra, a determination, and answers to the objections; and the straightforward question-and-response found, for example, in The Prose Salernitan Questions." "Here, even more dearly perhaps than in his slightly later and much larger paraphrastic commentary On Animals [De animalibus], Albert adduces his own views - often criticizing other medieval physicians and natural philosophers - on comparative anatomy, human physiology, sexuality, procreation, and embryology. This translation, based on the critical edition that appeared in the Cologne edition of Albert's work, helps to explain the title "patron saint of scientists" bestowed upon Albert by Pope Pius XII." "This work should find its audience among medievalists and historians of science and culture. More so than the massive On Animals, it should prove useful in the classroom as an encyclopedia or handbook of medieval life."--BOOK JACKET

On union with God by Albertus Magnus ( )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Albert the Great was born in Swabia, the son of a military nobleman. He was a Dominican priest who taught theology in Cologne and Paris. His most distinguished student was Saint Thomas Aquinas. Albert was called Doctor universalis because his breadth of knowledge spanned not only philosophy and theology but all the natural sciences. He was a dedicated student of nature, and although he argued that the physical world can only be known reliably through observation and comparison, Albert distinguished between thruths, which are naturally knowable, and mysteries, which cannot be known without revelation. People can only reach God through Himself - that is, by leaving behind the entanglements of earthly things and contemplating Him exclusively. The image and reality of God's incarnation in Jesus gives human beings the opportunity to attain a more perfect knowledge God through contemplation. Albert refers to the teaching of St. Peter, Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you

Hauptbeschreibung Die Philosophie und Theologie des Mittelalters ist untrennbar mit Albertus Magnus (um 1200 bis 1280), dem Lehrer des Thomas von Aquin, verbunden. Albertus Magnus war ein herausragender Vertreter der Scholastik, der die christliche Glaubenslehre durch eine originelle Aufnahme der aristotelischen Philosophie belebte und die nachfolgende Geschichte der Theologie wesentlich mitprägte. Bahnbrechend war er auch als an Empirie und Experiment orientierter Naturforscher. Die Aufgeschlossenheit für die Meinung Andersdenkender zeichnet den ""Doctor universalis"" ebenfalls au
