Summary:
"Reclaiming Moral Agency provides a comprehensive analysis of the moral philosophy of Albert the Great (1200-1280) the first and only such undertaking in English. It lays out what is, with rare exceptions, an unknown, ignored, or poorly understood aspect of Albert's humanism. It also fills in a major lacuna in both the history of medieval philosophy and the wider history of moral theory."--Jacket.
