Overview

Rory Fox challenges the traditional understanding that Thomas Aquinas believed that God exists totally outside of time. Time and Eternity in Mid-Thirteenth-Century Thought investigates the work of several mid-thirteenth-century writers, including Albert the Great, Bonaventure, and Aquinas, examining their understanding of the topological and metrical properties of time. Fox thus provides access to a wealth of material on medieval concepts of time and eternity, while using the conceptual tools of modern analytic philosophy to express his conclusions.

With Logos Bible Software, Time and Eternity in Mid-Thirteenth-Century Thought is completely searchable, with Scripture passages appearing on mouseover and linking to your favorite Bible translation in your library. This makes this text more powerful and easier to access than ever before.
