Textul de pe ultima copertă
In this book, Milbank and Pickstock present a wholesale re-evaluation of the thought of Thomas Aquinas. They claim, against many received readings, that Aquinas's philosophical account of truth is also an entirely theological one. His understanding of truth as adequatio is shown to be inseparable from his metaphysical and doctrinal treatment of the participation of creatures in God as esse; from his theory of the convertibility of the transcendentals as mediated by the transcendental 'beauty'; and from his Christology and theology of the Eucharist. This vision is remote from the assumptions undergirding modern accounts of truth as correspondence or coherence or redundancy. Since these accounts are all in crisis, Milbank and Pickstock ask whether Aquinas's theological framework is not essential to the affirmation of the reality of truth as such. Compelling and challenging, Truth in Aquinas develops further the innovative theological project heralded by the publication of the seminal Radical Orthodoxy (Routledge, 1999).
"The critical work of Milbank and Pickstock in showing up the weaknesses in a whole range of current philosophical and theological theories of truth is, ...one of the most valuable features of this book."-"Theology "'Radical Orthodoxy' is the most heavyweight theological movement twentieth-century Christianity in England has produced."-Theology "This work is a startling re-reading of Aquinas, an the authors claim that Aquinas' model for approaching the study of God might be the way forward in the post-modern era. If you are a reader of history or philosophy, you will find this short work fuel for much thought. "Relevant August 2003."
