New Studies in Thomistic Thought

Michael Lukens

St. Thomas Aquinas remains a pervasive voice not only in philosophy and theology but in the wider spectrum of western cultural studies. This collection contributes to a broader understanding of thomistic philosophy, the historical and literary influences both upon and from him, and his ethical and spiritual thought. Such critical reflection on the legacy of St. Thomas indicates both the vitality and the continuing diversity of assessment about his place in contemporary thought.
Contents: An interdisciplinary collection of articles which analyzes the contribution and continuing significance of Thomas Aquinas in diverse areas of medieval social thought and literature, ethical and spiritual influences, as well as philosophy of knowledge and metaphysics.
