    Reading Aquinas is like listening to your Aunt Bev lecture you on post WWII politicsutterly boring but you know you are obligated to listen and simply nod your head and say mmhmm every minute or so.Nevertheless, I did absorb a good amount of this material And despite all the repetition, there were a few gems in this book, as it is organized quite nicely with an index in the back which I am sure I will consult anytime I need Aquinas philosophical opinion on the matter.Necessary reading.

    I always forget that Thomas is surprisingly funny.

    The law section was revolutionary and fascinating Still prefer to watch paint dry, not because it sinteresting but because it s less theologically problematic.

    This book is full of earlier Philosophers work, such as Aristotle, Pseudo Dionysus, Boethius etc. it does have Aquinas own take on matters The book skips back and forth and is very repetitive for the few gems within one thing is clear, that Aquinas was borrowed out of context by Catholicism and the fact he draws heavily on Earlier Greek philosophy proves it Some really good sections on life after death, energy and soul Overall I found the reading repetitive and tedious in places.

    Of course, I didn t read all of it How could I But I did read some of it for a class I took on Aquinas s Philosophy of Religion last semester when I was studying in Dublin And I feel like that effort counts for something.

    Extremely glad I read this Some arguments are unstable very few , but for the most part very sold.

    Aquinas is a methodical thinker with some useful insights, but based on this translation I would never read him again The writing is unbearably dull I had to really slog through this one.

    I am so heartbroken to be away from England that I am giving all its related books mediocre reviews.

    A great book It covers almost the entire spectrum of St Thomas s works, making the prevailing ideas accessible to the motivated reader The advantage of having this book on the shelf is to use it as a quick and accessible reference The book is translated and compiled with a great sense of duty on the par of Timothy McDermontt Well done Beautiful.
