Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics is the text which had the single greatest influence on Aquinas's ethical writings, and the historical and philosophical value of Aquinas's appropriation of this text provokes lively debate. In this volume of new essays, thirteen distinguished scholars explore how Aquinas receives, expands on and transforms Aristotle's insights about the attainability of happiness, the scope of moral virtue, the foundation of morality and the nature of pleasure. They examine Aquinas's commentary on the Ethics and his theological writings, above all the Summa theologiae. Their essays show Aquinas to be a highly perceptive interpreter, but one who also brings certain presuppositions to the Ethics and alters key Aristotelian notions for his own purposes. The result is a rich and nuanced picture of Aquinas's relation to Aristotle that will be of interest to readers in moral philosophy, Aquinas studies, the history of theology and the history of philosophy.

Review:

'... ideal for readers who wish to know what distinctively philosophical contributions Aquinas made to ethics ... the authors bring together many sources and insights, sorting out what had been a messy debate. The result is perhaps the best book in print on Aquinas the moral philosopher, as opposed to Aquinas the moral theologian.' C. J. Wolfe, Claremont Review of Books

'Whether the reader has newly begun his study of Aquinas's ethics, or is an established scholar in the field, both should find this collection a valuable addition to the current literature.' Tina Baceski, International Philosophical Quarterly

'The group assembled here includes some outstanding scholars who write with commendable clarity. As a consequence, even readers who have studied Aquinas in detail are likely to benefit from new insights.' Andrew Pinsent, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

'The volume is well-edited, well-conceived, and well-executed ... It will be useful for scholars of Aquinas and Aristotle but the philosophical focus, in addition to the exegetical one, should rightly attract other scholars as well.' W. Scott Cleveland, Journal of Moral Philosophy

Book Description:

This book addresses the complex relation between Aquinas's moral thought and Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, exploring how Aquinas adopts, corrects or transforms key themes from Aristotle's work. The book will be of interest to students in moral philosophy, Aquinas, and those studying the history of philosophy and the history of theology.
