Thomas Aquinas: A Very Short Introduction
Thomas Aquinas is one of the giants of medieval philosophy, a thinker who had–and who still has–a profound influence on Western thought. Aquinas was a controversial figure in his time who was often engaged in fierce theological debates. He was the foremost classical proponent of natural theology, and the father of the Thomistic school of philosophy and theology. This Very Short Introduction will look at Aquinas in a historical context, and explore the Church and culture into which Aquinas was born. It will consider Aquinas as philosopher and theologian, and will look at the relationship between philosophy and religion in the thirteenth century. Fergus Kerr, in this engaging and informative introduction, makes the Summa Theologiae, Aquinas's greatest single work, accessible to new readers. He also sheds valuable light on the importance of Thomas Aquinas in modern times, showing why Aquinas matters now, illustrating the significant role that the writings of Aquinas play in contemporary debate.

How Philosophy Begins

How Philosophy Begins
English | ISBN: 0874621518 | 1983 | 55 pages | EPUB | 0,1 MB
Father Gerard Smith, S.J., who was chairman of the Marquette Philosophy Department for twenty-two years, used to say that the Aquinas Lectures helped to push back the frontiers of ignorance. And, indeed, many of the previous speakers in this series have done just that, with a clarity and brilliance of insight that have illumined the minds of other philosophers on specialized topics. My remarks will be a more modest attempt.

As a teacher who has tried to explain some difficult concepts, I have often been aware of some questions in the minds of my students, such questions, for example, as these: "To whom are you speaking, professor? Will you please speak to us? If you must talk philosophy, can you lead us into it gently? Can you show us how and why philosophy begins?"
