Aquinas, while studying at the University of Naples, joined the Dominican monastic order in 1244. Under St. Albert the Great he embarked on a life of teaching, preaching, and writing. He was formally canonized in 1323.

Jacquelin Thomas is the national bestselling and award-winning author whose many adult novels include "Defining Moments, Saved in the City, Soul Journey, A Change Is Gonna Come, The Prodigal Husband", and "Singsation". Her short fiction is featured in the Pocket Books anthology "Have a Little Faith". A driving force in the world of Christian fiction, she is the founder and producer of the annual Faith-Based Arts Conference, an event showcasing authors in the field.

HASH(0xb38c1ef4) out of 5 stars A Wonderful Little Book Feb. 22 2001
By A Customer - Published on
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.

HASH(0xb3b3f90c) out of 5 stars Good translation of an important text Jan. 12 2013
By Artes - Published on
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.

HASH(0xb38952e8) out of 5 stars A cure for Sciencism & Arrogance Oct. 11 2014
By Miriam - Published on
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..
