Editorial Reviews


"...the whole of this challenging book is cogently argued, in dialogue with major scholars, and it's largely convincing. A genuine contribution to Aquinas scholarship." Denis R. Janz, Religious Studies Review

"While this book deals with complex and abtruse issues, it focuses on pivotal ones and is well organized and clear. Thus, although it will interest mainly graduate and postgraduate readers, advanced undergraduates may delve into it with profit. Recommended for larger theology collections." Choice

" important philosophical treatment of the central concept in most ancient and medieval theories of knowledge." Charles Bolyard, Philosophy in Review

"In this impressive first book, John Jenkins...sheds considerable light on Aquina's ambition and practice in the Summa theologiae through the close examination of certain epistemological terms..." Joseph Wawrykow, Journal of Religion

Book Description

This book offers a revisionary account of key epistemological concepts and doctrines of St Thomas Aquinas, particularly his concept of scientia (science), and proposes a new interpretation of the purpose and composition of Aquinas' most mature and influential work, the Summa theologiae, which has traditionally been regarded as a work for neophytes in theology. John Jenkins' comprehensive and original study will be of interest to readers in philosophy, theology and mediaeval studies.
