This course opens the door to postmodern scholasticism. The Baroque scholastics (1580 to 1680AD) lived in Spain at the same time that Galileo, Descartes, and others founded the Age of Ideas. 300 years later, postmodern thought significantly overlaps with concerns of the Baroque scholastics. What is a mind-dependent being? What is abstraction? What is a sign? These are all covered in this course.
