Synopses & Reviews
The second edition of Aquinas, On Law, Morality, and Politicsretains the selection of texts presented in the first edition but offers them in new translations by Richard J. Regan--including that of his Aquinas, Treatise on Law (Hackett, 2000). A revised Introduction and glossary, an updated select bibliography, and the inclusion of summarizing headnotes for each of the units--Conscience, Law, Justice, Property, War and Killing, Obedience and Rebellion, and Practical Wisdom and Statecraft—further enhance its usefulness.
Perfect for presenting the core of St. Thomas' teachings on law, morality, and politics.--Charles E. Butterworth, University of Maryland
The best available selection of texts for the study of Aquinas' natural law doctrine.--Alfonso Gomez-Lobo, Georgetown University
