2013 Books

Last year, in a series of 3 posts, I listed 57 books on medieval philosophy published in 2012. Here, altogether at once, is a list of 102 (!) from 2013. Apologies for omissions and errors (both of which there doubtless are). I’ve especially benefited from Druart’s Islamic bibliography, the bibliography at Philosophia Medii Aevi, and the SMRP newsletter. (And special thanks locally to Zak Kopeikin for his considerable help.) Feel free to send additions and corrections to this list, or information about 2014 books, which I will save for next year, inshallah.
