Item Description...

Aquinas's discussions of moral issues are extensive, and range well beyond the narrowly defined set of issues in the modern tradition of moral philosophy. This volume explores the ethical dimensions of a wide selection of philosophical and theological topics in Aquinas's texts. It covers topics central to ethics, such as happiness, moral virtue, and natural law, as well as related topics pertaining to the metaphysical basis of Aquinas's account of goodness, the ramifications of his ethical concerns for his philosophy of language, and the significance of his philosophical psychology for his ethics.

The volume is divided into three sections focusing, respectively, on issues concerning moral theory and moral theology, moral psychology and practical reason, and moral theory in philosophy of language and metaphysics. The authors distinguished scholars of medieval philosophy bring to these issues a variety of approaches and viewpoints. By creatively sampling the breadth of Aquinas's reflections on ethical issues and exploring some of the significant connections that tie his moral thought to other parts of his philosophical and theological system, they display the richness and depth of Aquinas's moral thinking.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Re: Tribute to Two Great Thinkers  Aug 19, 2000
This book honors two great thinkers in one collection of essays. The title of the book, "Aquinas' Moral Theory", tells that the authors included concern themselves with the various subjects related to Thomas Aquinas' rich account of human moral action and the principles of morality which help to define the nature of such actions. The subtitle, "Essays in Honor of Norman Kretzmann", tell us that the late Dr. Kretzmann is rightfully recognized as one of the great medieval and Thomistic interpreters of the past few decades. Not only is his own work of great value to scholars and students today; but that of his successors, Eleonore Stump and Scott MacDonald (who succeeded Dr. Kretzmann in his chair at Cornell University), is equally recognized as some the best scholarship currently being done. Readers of this book will find, among all the authors included, a scholarly rigorous and informative collection of essays which help those already familiar with the basics of Thomistic action theory and moral philosophy to delve more deeply into the relevant issues which are the subject of current debate in the philosophical arena.
