Jesuit scholastic philosophy of Francisco Suarez (1548–1617) is known to have exerted significant influence over scholastic theology in the 17th and 18th centuries. However, the historic philosophical and theological context from which his ideas emerged, marked by his Jesuit contemporaries, is not well known. In the field of philosophical cognitive psychology, especially in the commentaries on Aristotle's On the Soul, this book aims to correct this knowledge gap. Each chapter provides evidence of the theological motivation and theological horizon of the Jesuit cognitive psychology of the last decades of the 16th century and the first decades of the 17th century.

The author offers a new look at one of the most influential books in the history of philosophy: Ludwig Wittgenstein's "Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus." He presents the "Tractatus "as expressing the intellectual anxieties of its modernist epoch. The most intriguing but usually unanswered question concerning the "Tractatus "is why Wittgenstein had to think that only propositions of natural science have meaning. The author reviews the most popular interpretations of the "Tractatus "and comes to the conclusion that the early Wittgenstein was an ethical subjectivist. With this insight, he solves the tension between Tractarian theses that influenced neopositivism and its mystical part.

The contributions to this volume examine the emergence of ancient Jewish art from the interdisciplinary perspective of Art and Archaeology, Ancient Judaism and Rabbinics, Patristics and Church History. The studies show that an interdisciplinary approach leads to a better understanding not only of ancient Jewish, but also of Graeco-Roman and Christian art. They evaluate how late antique Jewish art was embedded in its Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine cultural contexts by, at the same time, evincing specifically Jewish and local Near Eastern idiosyncrasies.
