Publisher's Description

The works of Thomas Aquinas, one of the greatest Western philosophers as well as theologians of the Christian Church, are not only illuminating (for his questions as much as his answers) but surprisingly relevant to our concerns today. This book represents a long overdue modern comprehensive presentation of the total thought of Aquinas. While traditional studies of Aquinas invariably deal with either his philosophy or his theology, Davies introduces the full range of Aquinas's thinking, relating it to writers earlier and later than Aquinas himself. The book will be of considerable interest to professional theologians and philosophers, as well as to those with particular interest in medieval thinking. It is designed to be accessible to the general reader who has no specialist knowledge of medieval thought or professional training in philosophy or theology.

Editorial Reviews

"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
