"In this much-needed contribution to the lively debates that currently rage about natural law theory, Budziszewski provides a superb line-by-line commentary on the complete text of Aquinas' treatise on law - the first complete commentary of this sort in centuries. The Commentary offers insightful comments on the implications of modern philosophical developments for interpreting and evaluating the positions taken by Aquinas. An enormously valuable text, not only for scholars specializing in the field but also for those just embarking on a careful study of the work."
Fr. Joseph W. Koterski, S.J., Fordham University, New York
"Budziszewksi's depth and clarity make this commentary on St Thomas an indispensable tool for student, teacher and scholar. Providing an overall context for each question, then pairing his own paraphrase with the translation of the Dominican Fathers, Budziszewski proceeds to comment in detail on each objection, sed contra, answer and reply to objection. The important yet difficult Treatise on Law is laid open to our full view by Professor Budziszewski - clearly the fruit of many years of close study."
John Hittinger, University of St Thomas, Houston
"No area of public life is more confused than law and what it is. In this context, few books could be more significant than a complete, accurate and thorough reading and rereading of Aquinas' famous Treatise on Law. Budziszewski has performed an enormous service to intelligence and to clarity of public order in providing this detailed, yet readable and intellectually profound, commentary. It is a demanding book about a demanding topic, one that has been left too long unexamined in the tradition of Aquinas."
James V. Schall, S.J., Professor Emeritus, Georgetown University, Washington DC
In the Treatise on Law, Thomas Aquinas shows how the foundations of law and ethics are rooted in God's creational design, reflected in man's nature, and implemented by wise legislators. J. Budziszewski's commentary on the Treatise is written in luminously clear prose and should attract anyone interested in politics, jurisprudence, ethical controversies, or interreligious dialogue.
