Most widely held works by Etienne Gilson
The spirit of mediæval philosophy by Etienne Gilson( Book )
35 editions published between 1936 and 1993 in English and held by 2,014 libraries worldwide
All these lectures converge to this conclusion: that the Middle Ages produced, besides a Christian literature and a Christian art as everyone admits, this very Christian philosophy which is a matter of dispute. No one, of course, maintains that this mediaeval philosophy was created out of nothing, nor yet that all mediaeval philosophy was Christian -- just as no one maintains that mediaeval literature and art were created out of nothing or were wholly Christian. - Preface

"In this work, the eminent Catholic philosopher Etienne Gilson deals with one of the most important and perplexing metaphysical problems: the relation between our notion of God and demonstrations of his existence. Gilson examines Greek, Christian, and modern philosophy as well as the thinking that has grown out of our age of science in this fundamental analysis of the problem of God."--BOOK JACKET

In this final edition of his classic study of St. Thomas Aquinas, Etienne Gilson presents the sweeping range and organic unity of Thomistic philosophical thought. Gilson demonstrates that Aquinas drew from a wide spectrum of sources in the development of his thought -- from Aristotle, to the Arabic and Jewish philosophers of his time, as well as from Christian writers. What results is an insightful introduction to the thought of Aquinas and the Scholastic philosophy of the Middles Ages. -- Publisher description

The philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas : authorised translation from the third revised & enlarged edition of 'Le thomisme' by Etienne Gilson( Book )
66 editions published between 1924 and 1993 in English and held by 1,185 libraries worldwide
The present revival of interest in the name and work of St. Thomas Aquinas is a fact which is bound to impress even the most superficial observer. In fact, nobody thinks of denying it; but, since it disturbs the set habits of some, the attempt has been made to give it an unfavourable interpretation in order to escape the duty to take an interest in it. It is - so it has been said - a merely artificial return to an obsolete scholasticism, a movement, political-religious rather than strictly philosophical; what has not been alleged and invented to explain a movement of ideas whose depth and vitality are sufficient to disprove so mean an origin!

"Dans son Discours de la méthode, Descartes semble annoncer Le Corbusier quand il rêve de villes tracées au cordeau, délivrées du désordre médiéval, et qu'il compare l'empilement chaotique des savoirs hérités de la tradition à ces constructions de guingois encombrant le coeur de la capitale. Déplorant la confusion de leur agencement et magnifiant la transparence des édifices rationnels, Descartes formule le projet utopique d'un futur proche où l'homme se serait rendu "comme maître et possesseur de la nature". Relire le Discours de la méthode c'est à cet égard remonter à la source des fantasmes prométhéens de la modernité. Cependant, Descartes redevient philosophe dès lors qu'il rejoint sa chambre et nous invite, à son instar, à nous arrêter en chemin pour tester la solidité de nos certitudes. C'est à l'âge d'homme, quand le savoir accumulé obscurcit l'esprit, qu'il faut savoir s'offrir, au moins une fois en sa vie, le luxe du doute. Faites place nette sur votre table de chevet pour y déposer, comme une purge aux vertus cathartiques, ce texte radicalement moderne!"--[Source inconnue]
