Description

Published posthumously, this study of Aristotle is thoroughly rewarding and will only increase McCabe's reputation as one of Britain's finest theologians of recent years.The revival of interest in Aquinas has run simultaneously with the rise of interest in Aristotle, on whose philosophy Aquinas based his own. "On Aquinas" is a masterly work of exposition written with breathtaking clarity. By the use of simple modern analogy McCabe really brings Aquinas' thought to life and underlines the crucial influence of Aquinas on our own contemporary thought. It is rare to find a work of philosophical exposition which is exciting to read. Even those who are unfamiliar with Aquinas will find this book gripping to read. No wonder therefore that McCabe's gifts are so greatly admired by people as diverse as P.J. Kavanagh (poet) Anthony Kenny (philosopher) Terry Eagleton (literary and cultural critic) and Alasdair MacIntyre, whose book "After Virtue" has had such enormous influence today. "On Aquinas" can only enhance McCabe's reputation.
