St. Thomas Aquinas is universally recognized as one of the greatest philosophers who ever lived. His writings combine the two fundamental ideals of philosophical writing: clarity and profundity. He is a master of metaphysics and technical terminology, yet so full of both theoretical and practical wisdom. He is the master of common sense. His major work, the Summa Theologica
, is timeless, but particularly important today because of his synthesis of faith and reason, revelation and philosophy, and the Biblical and the classical Greco-Roman heritages.
This book combines selected essential philosophical passages from Thomas' Summa with footnotes and and explanations by Kreeft, a popular Thomist teacher and writer. Kreeft selected those passages from Thomas that are intrinsically important, non-techinical enough to be intelligible to modern readers, and most likely to be used in a class or by independent readers who want to study the Summa on their own. This book gives ready access to St. Thomas. Includes a glossary and an index.
