Studying different hermeneutical approaches by Christian philosophers and theologians - such as appropriation, interpretation and criticism - to the Arabic and Hebrew intellectual traditions during the Middle Ages, the fourteen articles contained in this volume show how these processes both challenged and shaped the Western philosophical discourse.

Focusing on processes of appropriation, interpretation and criticism, the fourteen chapters of this volume show from different angles how the complex Latin reception of the Arabic and Hebrew intellectual legacy decisively shaped the Western philosophical discourse.
