“Aquinas’s Summa Theologiae: A Critical Guide”

Cambridge University Press has recently published a book Aquinas’s Summa Theologiae: A Critical Guide, edited by Jeffrey Hause. It is an anthology of newly-commissioned essays on various issues undertaken in Summa, such as God’s essence, Trinity, Christology, evil, soul, natural and practical reason, natural law, as well as reception of Summa until the end of the 20th century.

Among the authors there are renown Thomists and philosophers, such as Stephen L. Brock (Pontifical University of the Holy Cross), Brian Davies O.P. (Fordham University; in 2015 he gave a lecture Aquinas On What God Is Not, concerning more or less the same topic as the one discussed by Davies in this book), Thomas M. Osborne, Jr (University of St. Thomas, Houston) or Jean Porter (University of Notre Dame; on You Tube you may find among others her lectures on justice according to St. Thomas or on Thomistic approach to common good).

Parts of the book and the table of contents may be found at Google Books.

The book was published as part of the Cambridge Critical Guides series, devoted to the greatest philosophical works (as far as Aquinas’s works are concerned, a book on Disputed Questions on Evil was issued in 2015).
