Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval 2021-01-21T16:54:02+01:00 Pedro Mantas Open Journal Systems <div align="JUSTIFY"> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval</em> (REFIME) is a yearly scholarly publication indexed, peer-reviewed, and distributed by UCO Press. Regularly published since 1993, it is the official journal of Sociedad de Filosofía Medieval (SOFIME). Its official venue is the University of Córdoba (Spain).</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left"><span style="font-size: small;">The main scope of <em>Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval</em> is the broad field of studies on medieval thought. Its specific aim is to provide scholarship with outstanding scientific contributions, specifically on scientific and philosophical reflections developed through the Middle Ages, their sources, and their influence through the Renaissance and Early Modern periods. Any original contribution to study on the four main medieval traditions – Latin, Arabic, Hebrew, and Greek – is welcome, especially if focused on the transmission of knowledge among these different frameworks. While the main interest of the Journal is the philosophical analysis of doctrinal positions held by medieval and Early Modern thinkers, papers examining the historical context of those positions are welcome as well, recognising the implicit link between historical and philosophical study of medieval thought. The Journal is also interested in original papers on the broad history of scientific reflection, from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern period, especially when linked to their medieval development or sources.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left"><span style="font-size: small;">Dedicated sections of the Journal publish critical reviews of newly published books and scientific notes of short length. In exceptional cases, the Journal accepts modern translations of medieval and Early Modern texts of short length accompanied by an introduction. Translations should be prepared bearing in mind their twofold aim of divulgation and scholarly contribution: the Editorial Board will only accept submission of papers meeting both of these requirements.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left"><span style="font-size: small;">Articles submitted must be original contributions. Please note that the Journal will accept a limited number of contributions by the same author. The editors will decide on a case-by-case basis whether to consider further contributions by the same author in a short period. Similar consideration may apply to book reviews.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left"><span style="font-size: small;">Authors should be aware that <em>Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval</em> will hold the copyright of the published articles. Consequently, articles published in the Journal must not be published again, either entirely or partially, in any other publications without explicit authorization by the Journal Editorial Board.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left"><span style="font-size: small;"><strong><em>Journal Indexes</em></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;" align="left"><span style="font-size: small;"><em>Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval</em> is rated by Scopus, Sistema de Valoración Integrada de Revistas Españolas (RESH), Difusión y Calidad Editorial de las Revistas Españolas de Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales y Jurídicas (DICE) and LATINDEX.

The translator’s prologues and epilogues to the three books of the <em>Mostrador e enseñador de los turbados</em>, the glosses inserted in the text are the expression of an idea of science and knowledge developed at a time when fundamental Hispanic cultural ideas and values had emerged; as well as the expression of a world of prejudice and ignorance, of veiled and lost knowledge. In a time of crisis and transformation of the Hispanic society, this glosses and commentaries, the translation as a whole, are the reflection of a cultural paradoxical of limits and aspirations.</span></p> 2020-12-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval La tripartición de la justicia en los comentarios de Tomás de Vio a Summa theologiae II-II, qq. 57-62 2021-01-21T16:53:51+01:00 Nicolás Ariel Lázaro <p>This paper compares the Cajetan commentaries to the notion of justice held by Aquinas in <em>S. Th. </em>II-II, qq. 57-62. A synthesis of such definition is offered from the collected notes. Turning to the «tripartition» notion we explain the fundamental differences between the commentaries of Thomas de Vio and Aquinas. As a conclusion, we offer some arguments regarding the applied effects that such a notion implies for the Ethical reflection, as well as the influence it could have had in later philosophical thought.</p> 2020-12-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval Internal Senses in Nicholas of Cusa’ Psychology 2021-01-21T16:54:00+01:00 Andrea Fiamma <p>The paper considers the Nicholas of Cusa’ interpretation of Aristotle’ <em>De anima</em> with regard to the functioning of the internal senses in the knowing process: <em>sensus communis</em>, <em>vis memorialis</em>, <em>vis aestimativa, phantasia, vis imaginativa</em>. The not numerous references on the Aristotelian doctrine of the internal senses in Nicholas of Cusa' work are organized, for the first time in the recent historiography on medieval theory of knowledge, in a systematic and ordered philosophical reconstruction.</p> 2020-12-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval The Reception of Pseudo-Dionysius’s Negative Theology in Alan of Lille 2021-01-21T16:53:57+01:00 José Osorio <p>The article investigates the reception of Pseudo-Dionysius’s negative theology in Alan of Lille’s philosophical and speculative theological works. In the first part, the paper discusses how Alan applied Pseudo-Dionysius’s negative theology to the problem of&nbsp;<em>translatio</em>&nbsp;and the limits of theological language. In the second part, the article sheds light on the problematic textual references and allusions in Alan’s appropriation and remarks about Pseudo-Dionysius. In the final section, the paper argues that despite Alan’s lack of access to the complete&nbsp;<em>Corpus</em>&nbsp;<em>Aeropagiticum</em>, his interpretation and adoption of negative theology is philosophically compelling.</p> 2020-12-22T00:00:00+01:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Revista Española de Filosofía Medieval Roger Bacon, Letter to Pope Clement IV 2021-01-21T16:53:45+01:00 Nikolaus Egel <p>First English translation of Roger Bacon’s <em>Letter to Pope Clement IV</em>. which has been edited by F.
