A Beginner's Guide

£9.99

One of the most influential philosophers and theologians in the history of Western thought, St Thomas Aquinas established the foundations for much of modern philosophy of religion, and is infamous for his arguments for the existence of God. In this cogent and multifaceted introduction to the great Saint's work, Edward Feser argues that you cannot fully understand Aquinas' philosophy without his theology and vice-versa. Covering his thoughts on the soul, natural law, metaphysics, and the interaction of faith and reason, this will prove a indispensible resource for students, experts or the general reader.

"A useful and easy to read introduction. Students and scholars will find [this] highly beneficial." - Fulvio di Blasi, President, Thomas International

"Lucid, cogent, and compelling. Required reading for anyone interested in Thomas Aquinas." - Christopher Kaczor, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Loyola Marymount University

"At last. A concise, accessible and compelling introduction to Aquinas's thought. Feser shows that Aquinas's philosophy is still a live option for thinkers today." - Kelly James Clark, Professor of Philosophy, Calvin College
