    A good introduction and breakdown of Thomstic thought My only critique is that primary translations of Thomas Aquinas s were a bit dated in their language.

    Had to read this one in bits pieces because philosophy is a lot to absorb I liked how the author broke down St Thomas teachings and how those teachings were building blocks to the big questions in the book about one s soul and the existence of God Appreciate having a better perspective into this saint Had to read this one in bits pieces because philosophy is a lot to absorb I liked how the author broke down St Thomas teachings and how those teachings were building blocks to the big questions in the book about one s soul and the existence of God Appreciate having a better perspective into this saint

    Thomas Aquinas and Aristotle presented by Notre Dame professor McInerny RIP McInerny takes the reader through the basics of Thomas philosophy and theology using plain words and common sense Thomas and Aristotleboth offer their proofs of the existence of God Prime Mover for Aristotle This book deserves multiple readings andconcentration to fully appreciate the nuggets presented by the professor
