Philosophy in Geoffrey Chaucer’s the Canterbury Tales

For a medieval philosophy class. Very little instructions for the paper, was just tasked with picking anything relating to medieval philosophy and writing a 15 page paper on it. The idea I proposed/selected was What medieval philosophical ideas and influences are found within the Tales? How was Chaucer influenced by different philosophers/ popular philosophical ideas of the time in his writing of the tales. It doesn’t have to be on the entire collection of tales but can focus on a few. Recommendations of tales that may be useful to focus on would be the Nun’s Priest tale and the Clerk’s Tales. The Nun’s priests tale has underlying ideas about whether or not we really have freewill and the Clerk’s tale through Griselda displays the idea that trusting God’s will no matter what will ultimately be the right thing.
