Thomas Aquinas (Dominican monk) (1225 - 1274) was an Italian Catholic priest and saint of the Dominican Order, and an influential philosopher and theologian within the scholastic tradition. One of the thirty-three teachers of the Church, known as the angelic world (Doctor Angelicus) and the surrounding world (Doctor Universalis). He is usually referred to as Thomas, and Aquinas attributes it to his residence at Aquinas. He was one of the influential figures in natural theology, and is the father of the Thomistic school of philosophy and theology. His influence is wide on Western philosophy, and many of the ideas of modern Western philosophy are either a revolution against his ideas or an agreement with them, especially in matters of ethics, natural law and political theory. Aquinas is considered the ideal teacher for those studying to be priests in the Catholic Church. He is known by his operation as the epitome of divinity, creation, and the Creator. Many Christians consider him the Church's greatest philosopher, so many educational institutions are named after him.

Book Description

An Exposition of the 'On the Hebdomads' of Boethius book pdf by Thomas Aquinas

In his sixth-century work commonly known as the De hebdomadibus, Boethius (ca. 480-524) poses the question of how created things or substances can be good just as they are--that is, good just by existing--without being the same as the source of all goodness, God, who is understood to be Goodness Itself. In his commentary written in the thirteenth century, St. Thomas Aquinas sets out to explain the problem Boethius is treating as well as to elucidate Boethius's solution. In doing so, however, the Angelic Doctor suggests a more developed analysis of goodness, based on his own metaphysical perspective.
