Cardinal Virtues by Saint Thomas Aquinas
Book DescriptionRichard J. Regan's new translation of texts from Thomas Aquinas' Summa Theologica IIII--on the virtues prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance--combines accuracy with an accessibility unmatched by previous presentations of these texts. While remaining true to Aquinas' Latin and preserving a question-and-answer format, the translation judiciously omits references and citations unessential to the primary argument. It thereby clears a path through the original especially suitable for beginning students of Aquinas. Regan's Introduction carefully situates Aquinas' analysis of these virtues within the greater ethical system of the Summa Theologica , and each selection is introduced by a thoughtful headnote. A glossary of key terms and a select bibliography are also included.
