Between Heaven and Hell

As Paul Cantor has elucidated in "The Uncanonical Dante: The Divine Comedy and Islamic Philosophy" (Philosophy and Literature, Volume 20, Number 1, April 1996), "Thus Averroes could say in effect that our souls are eternal by virtue of apprehending eternal truths such as those of mathematics.
In short, Averroes's conception of the Possible Intellect allowed him to speak of the immortality of the human soul without implying the survival of the individual soul after death. Cantor, a literature professor at the University of Virginia, allows that he is restating explicitly what Averroes suggested with deliberate subtle obscurity. And Cantor believes Dante to have been not a Christian but an Averroist. Cantor seems to prefer this dignified gravity to the bliss of the souls of the blessed.


Shakespeare's Roman Trilogy: The Twilight of the Ancient World (Paperback) | University Press Books/ Berkeley

By Paul A. Cantor
Paul A. Cantor first probed Shakespeare's Roman plays-- Coriolanus, Julius Caeser, and Antony and Cleopatra--in his landmark Shakespeare's Rome (1976). Cantor analyzes the way Shakespeare chronicles the rise and fall of the Roman Republic and the emergence of the Roman Empire. The transformation of the ancient city into a cosmopolitan empire marks the end of the era of civic virtue in antiquity, but it also opens up new spiritual possibilities that Shakespeare correlates with the rise of Christianity and thus the first stirrings of the medieval and the modern worlds. More broadly, Cantor places Shakespeare's plays in a long tradition of philosophical speculation about Rome, with special emphasis on Machiavelli and Nietzsche, two thinkers who provide important clues on how to read Shakespeare's works. In a pathbreaking chapter, he undertakes the first systematic comparison of Shakespeare and Nietzsche on Rome, exploring their central point of contention: Did Christianity corrupt the Roman Empire or was the corruption of the Empire the precondition of the rise of Christianity? Bringing Shakespeare into dialogue with other major thinkers about Rome, Shakespeare's Roman Trilogy reveals the true profundity of the Roman Plays. About the Author Paul A. Cantor is the Clifton Waller Barrett Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Virginia. He is the author of Shakespeare's Rome: Republic and Empire, also published with a new preface by the University of Chicago Press, and the Hamlet volume in Cambridge's Landmarks of World Literature series.
