of being. Owens writes extensively of the different but complementary approaches of Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas. He discusses the many facets of the Aristotelian notion of "form," including its role in a realistic epistemology.
This monograph, edited by Owens's colleague and former pupil, Lloyd P. Gerson, includes a complete bibliography of Owens's writings as well as works critical of Owens's readings of ancient and medieval philosophers. It will serves as an excellent introduction to one of the most influential interpretations of the Aristotelian metaphysical tradition of the past century.
Joseph Owens, C.Ss.R., was professor emeritus of philosophy at the University of Toronto and professor emeritus at the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies. Among his many books are: The Doctrine of Being in the Aristotelian Metaphysics (Pontifical Institute, 1951), A History of Ancient Western Philosophy (Appleton-Century- Crofts, 1959), An Elementary Christian Metaphysics (Bruce, 1963, reprint Center for Thomistic Studies 1985), and An Interpretation of Existence (Bruce, 1968). Owens was also the author of numerous works on medieval philosophy, especially on the thought of Thomas Aquinas. He died in 2005.
