About the Author

"The ten essays by respected scholars in medieval philosophy... range over a wide number of philosophical and theological topics. Moreover, they explore connections not only within Aquinas's work, but between Aquinas and Aristotle, between Aquinas and his contemporaries, and between Aquinas's thought and problems in contemporary philosophy.... The volume demonstrates the truth of two of Kretzmann's most deeply held beliefs about medieval philosophy: that philosophers today can still profit from careful study of Aquinas and that, despite the excellent work already being done in this field, there is much more work to be done."

--Journal of the History of Philosophy

"Although this anthology is entitled Aquinas's Moral Theory, the essays are topically broader in scope than moral philosophy as we frequently conceive it.... Eleonore Stump's essay 'Wisdom: Will, Belief, and Moral Goodness' is noteworthy in using contemporary illustrations of positions held by Aquinas which are pedagogically suggestive."

--Janine Marie Idziak "Philosophia Christi "

"The book is historically and philosophically solid and intellectually stimulating. It is an important work on Aquinas's moral thought."

--Simo Knuuttila "The Philosophical Review "
