This book offers a brief, accessible introduction to the thought of Boethius. After a survey of Boethiuss life and work, Marenbon explicates his theological method, and devotes separate chapters to his arguments about good and evil, fortune, fate and free will, and the problem of divine foreknowledge. Marenbon also traces Boethiuss influence on the work of such thinkers as Aquinas and Duns Scotus.
