Provides a foundation for understanding Aquinas theories. Beginning with a brief overview of Aquinas life and philosophical career, the authors introduce his overarching explanatory framework in order to provide the necessary background to his substantive theorizing in a wide range of areas: rational theology, metaphysics, philosophy of human nature, philosophy of mind, and ethical and political theory. Although not intended to provide a comprehensive evaluation of all aspects of Aquinas far-reaching writings, the volume does present a systematic introduction to the principal areas of his philosophy, attending no less to his methods and argumentative strategies than to his ultimate conclusions.
