"This is by far the best book we have on Aquinas's philosophy as a whole, and it will undoubtedly become a standard point of reference for anyone interested in his work" Robert Pasnau, Mind "This book is an astounding achievement. It will not be superseded for decades. It will surely remain on the bibliography for as long as Thomas Aquinas is regarded as a major thinker, for as long then as there is Western philosophy"Fergus Kerr, Ars Disputandi "a massive work of bridge-building that is triply impressive. Not only does she have a very comprehensive knowledge of Aquinas's texts to take off from, but she is well read in the contemporary Anglo "written with such rigorous lucidity that it should deal a death-blow to the common prejudice that mediaeval writers are obscure, inaccessible, and unlikely to have anything pertinent to say to the modern reader."E.J. Ashworth, Philosophical Books "Eleonore Stump is a brilliant thinker whose book should inform discussions of thomas for many years to come." Derek S. Jeffreys, The Journal of Religion "Eleonore Stump provides a clear and thorough treatment of some of the main philosophical themes that characterise Aquinas's vast corpus in a way that allows his thought to be situated among contemporary philosophers and their ideas." Jason Eberl, Review of Metaphysics "there is much to be learned not only from Stump's exacting way of presenting Thomas Aquinas but also from her ways of engaging analytic philosophy, of drawing upon contemporary neuroscience and molecular biology, and, most importantly, of mining some of the mostcentral theological topics in Aquinas' thought. Her chapters on the virtue of faith, grace and free will, incarnation, atonement, and providence should be required reading for every advanced student of theology." Reinhard Hutter, Modern Theology Thomas Aquinas ranks among the most important of Western philosophers; certainly, few philosophers or theologians had as much influence on the medieval period as he did. He played a significant role in bringing the philosophy of Aristotle into harmony with medieval philosophy and theology in the Latin West. His own original contributions to virtually every area of philosophy and theology shaped much of medieval thought after him, and they continue to be influential today. In this extensive and deeply researched study, Eleonore Stump explores the full range of Aquinas's writings. She presents and assesses the vast range of Aquinas's thought, including his metaphysics and theology, philosophy of mind, philosophical psychology, epistemology, ethics and political theory, and philosophy of religion. In the process, she brings Aquinas' thought into dialogue with current discussions in contemporary philosophy in ways that illuminate both the Thomistic and the contemporary positions.

- Publisher Few philosophers or theologians exerted as much influence on the shape of medieval thought as Thomas Aquinas. He ranks amongst the most famous of the Western philosophers and was responsible for almost single-handedly bringing the philosophy of Aristotle into harmony with Christianity. He was also one of the first philosophers to argue that philosophy and theology could support each other. The shape of metaphysics, theology, and Aristotelian thought today still bears the imprint of Aquinas' work.

In this extensive and deeply researched study, Eleonore Stump examines Aquinas' major works, Summa Theologiae and Summa Contra Gentiles, and clearly assesses the vast range of Aquinas' thought. Philosophers, theologians, and students of the medieval period alike will find this unrivalled study an indispensable resource in researching and teaching Aquinas.
