Aquinas’s Philosophical Commentary on the Ethics: A by J.C. Doig

By J.C. Doig

Is Aquinas's Sententia libri Ethicorum an interpretation of Aristotle in response to `principles of Christian ethics'? Or will we have in that paintings a presentation of the root of Aquinas's ethical philosophy? Professor Doig solutions those questions via an exam of the historic context in which the Sententia was once composed.
In Chapters 1-2, the work's function as a corrective of prior commentaries is validated. bankruptcy three, by means of interpreting philosophy at Paris among 1215 and 1283, finds that the thought by means of Aquinas of a ethical philosophy might were unexceptional. bankruptcy 4's research of the foundations underlying the ethical concept of the Sententia makes obvious that they have been seemed through Aquinas as either philosophical and Aristotelian. The date to be assigned the composition of the Sententia is studied in bankruptcy five, and the end is drawn, that with a few likelihood, the Sententia is its author's ultimate inspiration of ethical doctrines. The final bankruptcy bargains a precis of that ethical philosophy opposed to the old historical past introduced out earlier.
