John Buridan is recognized as one of the most central figures in medieval philosophy. However, Buridan's moral philosophy has received relatively little attention despite his innovative commentary on Aristotle's Ethics being widely read at European universities well into the 17th Century. This workshop explores fundamental topics in Buridan's moral philosophy.
