Divided into five sections -- Reality (Metaphysics), God and the World, Man, Morality, and Religion -- this anthology offers an unrivaled perspective of the full scope and rich variety of Aquinas's thought. It provides the general reader with an overall survey of one of the most outstanding thinkers of all time and reveals the major influence he has had on many of the world's great thinkers.

Review: An Aquinas Reader: Selections from the Writings of Thomas Aquinas

User Review  - Shep - Goodreads

Largely unhelpful, only providing Aquinas in snippets without much context. Its hard enough to follow Aquinas' arguments IN context, much less out of context. Nonetheless, the book holds some value due to Mary T. Clark's introductions and explanatory notes for various sections. Read full review
