Analytical Thomism

Analytical Thomism is a recent label for a newer kind of approach to the philosophical and natural theology of St Thomas Aquinas. It illuminates the meaning of Aquinas's work for contemporary problems by drawing on the resources of contemporary Anglo-Saxon analytical philosophy, the work of Frege, Wittgenstein, and Kripke proving particularly significant. This book expands the discourse in contemporary debate, exploring crucial philosophical, theological and ethical issues such as: metaphysics and epistemology, the nature of God, personhood, action and meta-ethics. All those interested in the thought of St Thomas Aquinas, and more generally contemporary Catholic scholarship, problems in philosophy of religion, and contemporary metaphysics, will find this collection an invaluable resource.

'This volume shows how much more mileage there still is in analytic Thomism, and thus implicitly suggests that there might be just as much or more in analytic reappropriations of other great medieval philosophers, thinkers whose methods and interests are conceivably even closer to those of modern philosophy. We perhaps would not expect ostrich Thomists to listen to analytic philosophers, but there seems to me some hope that analytic philosophers may follow the example of Anscombe and the others, and listen more attentively to their medieval ancestors. I look forward to more volumes such as this one.' Ars Disputandi '... this is an excellent collection... Recommended.' Choice
