A Wonderful Little Book Feb. 22 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This little work is indispensable to understanding Aquinas' distinctions between mathematics, physics, and metaphysics. A treasury of insight in a very small package.

Good translation of an important text Jan. 12 2013
By Artes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good translation of an important text by Aquinas. It's part of his commentary on Boethius' De Trinitate. He covers the sciences and the liberal arts. He discusses the divisions of science-practical vs. speculative, divine vs. mathematical vs. physical-methods of the sciences, and the relation of theology to the other sciences. It makes for mostly interesting, but somewhat dry reading (this is probably true of all texts by St. Thomas). There's much to be gained here if you like medieval philosophy/theology/science or if you just enjoy dipping into Scholastic texts once in a while (and you should!). If you're interested in the Liberal Arts tradition, this is an important text. You'll find him commenting not only on Boethius but on Hugh of St. Victor. There's also a nice introduction which will help illuminate some of the dark corners of the text.

A cure for Sciencism & Arrogance Oct. 11 2014
By Miriam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If people educated in the physical sciences wanted to study this, they would not be so smug about their branch of science. A must for every college educated person BEFORE they begin their studies . However, you can lead the arrogant to water, but you can't make them drink..
