Census of North American Doctoral Dissertations on Medieval Philosophy

The website In Medias PHIL, Robert Pasnau’s medieval philosophy blog, has a recent post that lists philosophy doctoral dissertations on medieval topics currently in progress at North American universities. Nearly half of them (32 out of 68 listed dissertations) contain Aquinas’s name in their respective titles. Other medieval philosophers whose names appear more than once include: Avicenna (4), Ockham (3), Anselm (2), Augustine (2), and Albert the Great (2). Pasnau promises a future survey of European dissertations in progress.
