Abstract :
Bate shares with Thomas Aquinas the common scholastic world-view, in which Aristotle’s philosophy of nature, psychology, ethics and metaphysics are interpreted against a Christian-Neoplatonic background. Nonetheless, an analysis of the Platonizing and often anti-Thomistic interpretations of Aristotle which are developed in the Speculum divinorum shows that Bate cannot be characterized as a Thomist, but rather is a compiler who endeavors to bring different philosophies into harmony.
