Summary

This book puts before the reader a succinct and philosophically valid interpretation of St. Thomas Aquinas’ arguments for the existence of God by a modern, historically grounded interpreter of his thought. Father Joseph Owens is well known for the exacting care with which he prepares his articles and the solid scholarly apparatus with which he supports them. His knowledge of Greek, Latin, Aristotelian, as well as the Thomistic corpus is profound, and he is conversant with the various interpretative traditions within Aristotelianism and Thomism in ancient, medieval, and modern times in their appropriate languages.

Joseph Owens is Professor of Classics and Theology at the University of Toronto. John R. Catan is Professor of Philosophy at State University of New York, College at Brockport.
