RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 370520 LA English T1 Aquinas A1 Copleston, Frederick C., PB Penguin Books PP Harmondsworth; Balitmore YR 1955 AB Aquinas' thought is of more than historical interest. There is a large group of contemporary philosophers, the Thomists, who draw inspiration from his writings. Indeed, strange as it may sound, his influence is greater today than it was during the Middle Ages. This book attempts to explain Aquinas' philosophical ideas in a way which can be understood by those who are unacquainted with medieval thought. And where possible, it relates these ideas to problems as discussed today. In a final chapter something is said about the development of Thomism in modern times.
