Summary
The greatest of the medieval philosophers, Thomas Aquinas sought to reconcile Christian doctrine with the classical philosophy of Aristotle and Plato. As controversial in his time as he is influential today, Aquinas is perhaps best known for his "Five Ways", a collection of ingenious--but often misunderstood--arguments for the existence of God. In this multifaceted introduction to the renowned thinker, Edward Feser shows how Aquinas's works are as relevant today as when they were written. Defending his ideas from modern misrepresentation, Feser introduces the great Saint's views on metaphysics, ethics, psychology, and philosophy of religion. Arguing that Aquinas's thought avoids many of the pitfalls of contemporary philosophy, this comprehensive volume will captivate both the seasoned "Thomist" and the absolute novice
