Item description for Aquinas for Everyone: 65 Questions Answered Imaginatively by Aquinas by Thomas Aquinas & Jules M. Brady...

Overview
Aquinas For Everyone is a collection of passages, culled from the writings of the Angelic Doctor, in each of which the author answers a philosophical or theological questions with the aid of an appropriate concrete image. As in his earlier works, Newman For Everyone (St Pauls, 1996) and Augustine For Everyone (St Pauls, 2002) Fr. Brady introduces us in a very novel way to the thought of perhaps the most creative thinker in the history of the church. In doing so readers unacquainted with the technicalities of Thomistic Philosophy and Theology can discover for themselves the clarity, harmony and simplicity that characterize the writings of this great Scholastic theologian. At the same time, the reader will be introduced to the thought and methodology of the great Greek philosopher, Aristotle. It is hoped that, by examining these texts, many will be prompted to study seriously the Summa Theologiae, the classic work of this treat saint.

More About Thomas Aquinas & Jules M. Brady


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.
