About the Author

Therese Scarpelli Cory is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana.


"... indispensable to any future study of self-knowledge in Aquinas. Its virtues include an exhaustive review of the scholarly literature on self-knowledge, a detailed analysis of each component of Aquinas's theory, and proposed resolutions to each interpretive problem. [This book] will spark a new debate over the centrality of self-knowledge in Aquinas's thought." Carl N. Still, Journal of the History of Philosophy
