eBook Name : Aquinas on Mind

About Author

Thomas Aquinas'' philosophical psychology, or philosophy of mind, was neglected for centuries by secular thinkers because of the dominance of ideas deriving from Descartes. Contemporary scholars, however, have discovered in his writings some of the best philosophical reflections from any period.Now available in paper, Aquinas on Mind makes accessible those parts of Aquinas'' system which have enduring value. The core of the work is a close reading of sections from Summa Theologiae which deal with the nature of human intellect and will and the relationship between body and soul. This study requires no knowledge of Latin or medieval history. It relates Aquinas'' system to a tradition of philosophy of mind inaugurated in the Anglo-American academic community by Wittgenstein and Ryle.
