2014 Books

A year ago, I listed 102 books from 2013. In my previous post I listed an additional 32 from 2013. Here now are 140 books on medieval philosophy from 2014.

Apologies as always for omissions and errors (both of which there doubtless are). The order of the books is completely random, which I find amusing, though I expect it will mainly annoy others.

It turns out there are so many books published in our field every year that I expect you’ll find that even reading through the list counts as a significant achievement. To say nothing of compiling the list. For help with that I owe thanks to Druart’s Islamic bibliography, the bibliography at Philosophia Medii Aevi, the SMRP newsletter, and Pariscope médiéval. (Special thanks as well locally to Lisa Guinther.)

Feel free to send additions and corrections to this list, or information about 2015 books.
