Overview

St. Thomas Aquinas is universally recognized as one of the greatest philosophers who ever lived. His writings are both clear and profound; he is a master of metaphysics and technical terminology, yet full of both theoretical and practical wisdom. The Summa Theologica is timeless, but particularly important today because of his synthesis of faith and reason, revelation and philosophy, and the biblical and the classical Greco-Roman heritages. This little book is designed for beginners, either for classroom use or individually. It contains the most famous and influential passages of St. Thomas’ philosophy with copious aids to understanding them.
