1578 Albertus Magnus Paradisus Animae Ethics Metaphysics in MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT. Do there exist many worlds, or is there but a single world? This is one of the most noble and exalted questions in the study of Nature.
Albertus Magnus was a 13. Century Dominican friar known for his contributions to philosophy and natural sciences such as mathematics, astronomy, and metaphysics. His work represents the entirety of European knowledge from the 13. Century, particularly in pairing Aristotelian knowledge with Christian doctrine. Century printing is of Albertus writings on ethics and virtue.
In this book, his view points on natural philosophy are discussed in relation to the development of a Christians relationship with God and whether or not Aristotelian philosophy would hinder that spiritual growth. Albertus begins this work with describing the love for God. True love for God is completed when there is no more searching for him, for the sake of nobility, goodness, wisdom, holiness, and perfection; he is the God. Like in many of his works, Albertus compares metaphysical and philosophical ideas to moral goodness and religion.
