Abstract:

David Decosimo examines Thomas Aquinas's conception of 'pagan virtue' - of whether non-Christians or those without grace can lead truly virtuous lives - and explains how that vision relates to the substance of his ethics and his way of doing moral theology. Sketching a vision for Thomas's ongoing significance for religious and political life that it calls 'prophetic Thomism', the book offers a new vision of his synthesis, an interpretation of his ethics, and a constructive proposal for welcoming outsider virtue without abandoning one's own commitments.
