By J.C. Doig

Or will we have in that paintings a presentation of the basis of Aquinas's ethical philosophy? Professor Doig solutions those questions via an exam of the historic context during which the Sententia used to be composed.
In Chapters 1-2, the work's position as a corrective of previous commentaries is verified. bankruptcy three, through analyzing philosophy at Paris among 1215 and 1283, unearths that the notion through Aquinas of a ethical philosophy could were unexceptional. bankruptcy 4's research of the rules underlying the ethical idea of the Sententia makes obvious that they have been appeared 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 chance, the Sententia is its author's ultimate thought of ethical doctrines. The ultimate bankruptcy deals a precis of that ethical philosophy opposed to the historic historical past introduced out earlier.
