Thomas Aquinas was one of the greatest Western philosphers and one of the greatest theologians of the Christian church. In this book we at last have a modern, comprehensive presentation of the total thought of Aquinas. Books on Aquinas invariably deal with either his philosophy or his theology. But Aquinas himself made no arbitrary division between his philosophical and his theological thought, and this book allows readers to see him as a whole. It introduces the full range of Aquinas' thinking; and it relates his thinking to writers both earlier and later than Aquinas himself.
"The best comprehensive exposition of Aquinas's thought available."--A.P. Martinich, University of Texas at Austin"An exceptionally well produced introduction to Aquinas....Successfully links Aquinas to the great philosophical tradition and makes an excellent reader for a course in the history of philosophy."--William N. Zulch, Holy Family College"Clearly presents Aquinas' thought in an accurate yet accessible manner."--Peter Gathje, Kalamazoo College"A superb study: lucid, with a simplicity that is a marvel to behold. This is the best introduction to Thomas that I know of."--J. William Harmless, SJ, Spring Hill College"This is a first-rate synthetic treatment of Aquinas's thought according to its religious themes. Excellent for use in either philosophy of religion, Christian thought, or historical theology classes."--Donald G. Schley, University of Colorado
