Narrative and the Natural Law: An Interpretation of Thomistic Ethics

Front Cover
Notre Dame University Press, 1994 - Law - 155 pages
The Narative and the Natural Law brings Thomistic ethics into conversation with ongoing debates in contemporary moral philosophy, especially virtue theory and moral psychology, and with current trends in narrative theory and the philosophy of history. Pamela M. Hall's study offers a solid, challenging alternative to rigid, legalistic interpretations of the substantial discussions of law in Aquinas's Summa theologiae and defends Aquinas's ethics from charges of excessive legalism.
