Ethica Thomistica: The Moral Philosophy of Thomas Aquinas, Revised Edition
Some parts were a bit esoteric and hard to follow while other parts I highlighted whole paragraphs. Not for the faint of heart but thoimstica good. Dec 17, Alex rated it it was amazing Shelves: Very dense, but informative introduction to Saint Thomas Aquinas.
Thomism is a fascinating philosophy, very complex but still the opposite of the inconsequential navelgazing that so many philosophers like to engage in these day. In other words, thpmistica isn’t A Theory of Justice. The Angelic Doctor knew better than to write a five hundred page tome based on premises that he snatched from thin air. His system of ethics is the most elegant and beautiful I have discovered since I’ve stumbled over Rothbar Very dense, but informative introduction to Saint Thomas Aquinas.
His system of ethics is the most elegant and beautiful I have discovered since I’ve stumbled over Rothbardianism. The main reason why I got this book was because I wanted to learn more about refutations of the naturalistic fallacy and the is-ought-problem. It was a good feeling to reap the reward of years thomlstica stubborn resistance against emotivism.
If such a refutation is what you’re looking for, too, then look no further. You’ve found your book. I’ll likely reread Ethica Thomistica in a year or so, maybe even sooner. It’s short, but very densely packed with information, and the subject matter is extremely complex, although rightly so. Nov 28, David Haines rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: McInerny explains that Thomistic view of Moral Philosophy from a contemporary perspective.
He interacts with alot of the important problems that have been raised by modern moral philosophy, and shows the relationship between moral philosophy and christian theology. He interacts with problems raised against Ethicw moral philosophy, by David Hume and G. Moore, such as what has come to be called the Naturalistic fallacy, showing that it is a misunderstanding, and a false problem.
All in all this book is a joy to read, and is filled with great examples of morality drawn from our modern life. I would recommend this book to everyone who is interested in Moral philosophy.

Ethica Thomistica : Moral Philosophy of Thomas Aquinas
A basic breakdown of the moral philosophy of Thomas Aquinas. Text seems to shift from accessible to convoluted and back again every few pages, making it a relatively inconsistent read. Translations of Aquinas are well done, but rarely included throughout the text.

Mar 14, Hhomistica rated it it was ok Shelves: By no means for beginners. Were I a complete newcomer to philosophy in general or Thomistic thought in particular, this book would have been impenetrable.
