Chapter Summary

This bibliography of this book The afterlife of the platonic soul: reflections of platonic psychology in the monotheistic religions contains a list of primary and secondary reference sources. The book aims to present a study on the treatment of the human soul by a selection of medieval Christian, Jewish and Muslim thinkers. Notably, medieval thought was heavily influenced by Greek philosophy, ever since Philo of Alexandria had first integrated it into his interpretation of the Bible. The nature and the future of the human soul is also one of the most important problems which call for deep study and support from both theology and philosophy. Thus, the book devotes considerable attention to the problems that arise when studying the nature and the destiny of the human soul, and illustrates some of the solutions which the most notable thinkers of the mediaeval period provided.

Keywords: Alexandria; Jewish thinkers; monotheistic religions; Muslim thinkers; platonic soul
