Description

`It is hard to see how such a book could be done better ...Anthony Kenny ...manages to convey with great vividness the astonishing depth and intensity of Thomas's commitment to coherent rational understanding and the prodigious intellectual industry which he displayed in its pursuit.' John Dunn, London Review of Books St Thomas Aquinas's theological works, and especially his masterpiece the Summa Theologiae contain philosophical insights which entitle him to be considered as one of the world's greatest philosophers. Anthony Kenny's masterful introduction gives an account of St Thomas's life and works, sketching the major concepts of Aquinas's metaphysical system including his doctrine of Being, with the last chapter devoted to his philosophy of mind. This book is intended for students of theology and philosophy - particularly medieval or metaphysical. Students of the literature and history of the medieval period.
