About Book

Heston narrates, and actors provide vocal characterizations for this introduction to the life and work of Aquinas. Heston's fine voice and air of authority are well suited to this clear, understandable, and interesting script. The examples are easy to follow and will acquaint the listener, not only with the work of Aquinas, but also with certain fundamental concepts in the study of philosophy.

Product Description
St. Thomas Aquinas is known for producing historys most complete system of Christian philosophy. In the late 13th century, this quiet, reflective Dominican scholar combined the work of Aristotle with Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and pagan thought to reconcile reason and faith. For Thomas, intellectual knowledge is a sign of the spirituality that energizes the human center. He believed we can know that God exists, but not what god is like. Thomas's masterpiece, the Summa Theologiae, contains over 10,000 objections and replies to fundamental questions about God and the world. It includes Thomas's famous "five ways" to prove God's existence, which are (1) the unmoved mover, (2) the uncaused cause, (3) the necessary being, (4) the perfect Goodness, and (5) the guiding intelligence. His thought continues to influence Catholic philosophy today.
