Abstract

"Thomas Aquinas's Commentary on the Sentences is, alas, rarely read. Thanks to Krause's English translation of the gigantic q. 2 of book 4, distinction 4 (on the beatific vision), however, Aquinas's early thought on this important theological and philosophical puzzle is now accessible to a wider readership. This book is more than a text translation: It is a veritable goldmine of information about the historical and conceptual dimensions of the problem with which Aquinas grapples. Its extensive volume introduction, which lays out all the strands of discourse - Greek, Arabic, Latin - in the historical conversation that Aquinas inherited, is a must-read for scholars working in the area, while also being clear and accessible for non-specialist readers. Additionally, Krause has provided illuminating introductions that clearly and elegantly map out the concepts at issue in each article. With Krause's aid, readers will find themselves well-equipped to plunge into these deep waters with Aquinas".

Prof. Therese Cory (University of Notre Dame)
