Item Description...
The De Malo represents some of Aquinas' most mature thinking on goodness, badness, and human agency. In it he examines the full range of questions associated with evil: its origin, its nature, its relation to good, and its compatibility with the existence of an omnipotent, benevolent God. This edition offers Richard Regan's new, clear readable English translation, based on the Leonine Commission's authoritative edition of the Latin text. Brian Davies has provided an extensive introduction and notes. (Please note: this edition does not include the Latin text).

More About Saint Aquinas Thomas, Richard J. Regan, Brian Davies & Brian Davies

Thomas Aquinas Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274) lived at a critical juncture of western culture when the arrival of the Aristotelian corpus in Latin translation reopened the question of the relation between faith and reason, calling into question the modus vivendi that had obtained for centuries. This crisis flared up just as universities were being founded. Thomas, after early studies at Montecassino, moved on to the University of Naples in 1244, where he met members of the new Dominican Order. It was at Naples too that Thomas had his first extended contact with the new learning. When he joined the Dominican Order he went north to study with Albertus Magnus, author of a paraphrase of the Aristotelian corpus. Thomas completed his studies at the University of Paris, which had been formed out of the monastic schools on the Left Bank and the cathedral school at Notre Dame. In two stints as a regent master Thomas defended the mendicant orders and, of greater historical importance, countered both the Averroistic interpretations of Aristotle and the Franciscan tendency to reject Greek philosophy. The result was a new modus vivendi between faith and philosophy which survived until the rise of the new physics. The Catholic Church has over the centuries regularly and consistently reaffirmed the central importance of Thomas's work for understanding its teachings concerning the Christian revelation, and his close textual commentaries on Aristotle represent a cultural resource which is now receiving increased recognition.

He was formally canonized in 1323.

Thomas Aquinas was born in 1225 and died in 1274.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Summon Your Demons  Nov 28, 2009
It is a sad thing indeed, that the great Thomas Aquinas is the court theologian of the Roman Church. Those with an atheist bent, and who have never read a single line of Thomas's writings, point to his awful Summa Theologica, and brush him aside as a dullard and an adulterator of Aristotelianism. The truth is that Thomas was an excellent philosopher in his own right. Summa Theologica is not the best that he wrote. Dominique Chenu rightly pointed out that the Disputed Questions, and not the Summa, are to be considered the greatest among the writings of Thomas. And among the Disputed Questions, the one on hand, De Malo (On Evil), stands out as perhaps the very best. In this work, Thomas Aquinas offers us the most detailed anatomy of evil ever put down on paper. The only shortcoming of this work is that it is geared towards evil as an individual act, be it demonic or human. Thomas has nothing to say regarding the reality of social evil. But the latter perspective cannot be expected from a philosopher of the Middle Ages. Even so, those of our contemporaries who have the tenacity to study this brilliant treatise are likely to reap ample reward.
