Cambridge Companion to Aquinas by Norman Kretzmann

Book Description

Among the great philosophers of the Middle Ages Aquinas is unique in pursuing two apparently disparate projects. On the one hand he developed a philosophical understanding of Christian doctrine in a fully integrated system encompassing all natural and supernatural reality. On the other hand, he was convinced that Aristotle's philosophy afforded the best available philosophical component of such a system. In a relatively brief career Aquinas developed these projects in great detail and with an astonishing degree of success. In this volume ten leading scholars introduce all the important aspects of Aquinas' thought, ranging from its historical background and dependence on Greek, Islamic, and Jewish philosophy and theology, through the metaphysics, epistemology and ethics, to the philosophical approach to Biblical commentary.

Books By Author Norman Kretzmann

Ammonius: on Aristotle on Interpretation 9 with Boethius: on Aristotle on Interpretation 9 by Norman Kretzmann Ammonius: on Aristotle on Interpretation 9 with Boethius: on Aristotle on Interpretation 9, Paperback (April 2014)

Chapter 9 of Aristotle's "On Interpretation" deals with determinism, and here the two influential commentaries of Ammonius and Boethius have been published together. It was once argued that Boethius was influenced by Ammonius, and this work aims to show that this was clearly not the case.

Sophismata of Richard Kilvington by Norman Kretzmann Sophismata of Richard Kilvington, Paperback (March 2011)

Originally published in 1990, this was the first ever translation or edition of obscure fourteenth-century philosopher Richard Kilvington's work.

Metaphysics of Creation by Norman Kretzmann Metaphysics of Creation, Paperback (October 2001)

Kretzmann explores Aquinas's theology of creation, which is natural (or philosophical) in that he developed it without depending on the data of Scripture. Because of the special importance of intellective creatures like us, Aquinas's account of the divine origin and organization of the universe includes ingredients of his philosophy of mind.

Metaphysics of Theism by Norman Kretzmann Metaphysics of Theism, Paperback (September 2001)

Kretzmann shows the continuing value of Aquinas's doctrines to the philosophical enterprise today; he argues that natural theology offers the only route by which philosophers can, as philosophers, approach theological propositions, and that the one presented in this book is the best available natural theology.
