Is Aquinas's Sententia libri Ethicorum an interpretation of Aristotle according to `principles of Christian ethics'? Or will we have in that paintings a presentation of the basis of Aquinas's ethical philosophy? Professor Doig solutions those questions via an exam of the old context in which the Sententia used to be composed.
In Chapters 1-2, the work's position as a corrective of previous commentaries is proven. bankruptcy three, by way of analyzing philosophy at Paris among 1215 and 1283, unearths that the inspiration via Aquinas of a ethical philosophy may were unexceptional. bankruptcy 4's research of the rules underlying the ethical thought of the Sententia makes obvious that they have been seemed through Aquinas as either philosophical and Aristotelian. The date to be assigned the composition of the Sententia is studied in bankruptcy five, and the end is drawn, that with a few chance, the Sententia is its author's ultimate thought of ethical doctrines. The last bankruptcy bargains a precis of that ethical philosophy opposed to the ancient historical past introduced out earlier.
