More Description

What is the relation of the state to God? How can a man be both a "political animal" and a follower of Christ? These enduring questions are considered in-depth in this carefully selected volume of the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas. Aquinas, among the most influential of the medieval philosophers, is recognized for synthesizing Christian theology with Aristotelian metaphysics and providing a philosophical defense of Christianity addressed to the non-Christian reader. This selection specifically focuses on Aquinas's concepts of politics, justice, social conflicts, and the impact they have on society.

Bigongiari's explanatory notes and helpful glossary of unusual terms make this volume the best introduction to Aquinas's political thought ever published.
