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 indispensable resource for students, experts or the general reader.

Review: Aquinas: A Beginner's Guide

User Review  - joseito - Goodreads

This book was not very good. It is very concerned with chasing after scientistic phantoms at the expense of clearly presenting Thomas's views. It is very confused, and should be avoided. Read full review
