This is the fourth and final panel in a series on 'What Is the Matter of/with Medieval Philosophy?', bringing together papers addressing the subject matter of medieval philosophy, including how subfields of philosophy were demarcated; how philosophy was separated from other disciplines; how medieval philosophy is separated from (and continuous with) ancient and early modern philosophy. This panel focuses on what medieval philosophy is, what it received from ancient philosophy and what it transmitted to post-medieval philosophy, and what role medieval philosophy has in the present day classroom.
