By Peter Kreeft
A shortened model of Kreeft's a lot higher Summa of the Summa, which in flip used to be a shortened model of the Summa Theologica. the cause of the double shortening is lovely visible: the unique runs a few 4000 pages! (The Summa of the Summa was once simply over 500.) The Summa is definitely the best, so much formidable, most sensible publication of theology ever written. In it, there's additionally a lot philosophy, that is chosen, excerpted, prepared, brought, and defined in footnotes right here by means of Kreeft, a favored Thomist instructor and author. St. Thomas Aquinas is universally well-known as one of many maximum philosophers who ever lived. His writings mix the 2 basic beliefs of philosophical writing: readability and profundity. he's a grasp of metaphysics and technical terminology, but so filled with either theoretical and sensible knowledge. he's the grasp of logic. The Summa Theologica is undying, yet fairly vital this present day as a result of his synthesis of religion and cause, revelation and philosophy, and the Biblical and the classical Greco-Roman heritages. This little publication is designed for newcomers, both for lecture room use or separately. It includes the main well-known and influential passages of St. Thomas' philosophy with copious aids to knowing them.
