A history of philosophy by Frederick C Copleston( Book )

566 editions published between 1944 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 2,132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traces the progress of philosophy from the earliest Greek thought to contemporary thought. Surveys the discovery and progress of philosophical Greco-Roman thought from the Pre-Socratics to Neoplatonism. The author posits as the end of Greek philosophy in its entirety the attempt to discover the ultimate cause or causes of existence. He traces the development of this search to Plato and Aristotle whose concern with supra-material reality prepared the way for the great Christian philosophers of the Medieval period
Nature and grace; selections from the Summa theologica of Thomas Aquinas by Thomas( Book )

103 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aquinas' thought is of more than historical interest. There is a large group of contemporary philosophers, the Thomists, who draw inspiration from his writings. Indeed, strange as it may sound, his influence is greater today than it was during the Middle Ages. This book attempts to explain Aquinas' philosophical ideas in a way which can be understood by those who are unacquainted with medieval thought. And where possible, it relates these ideas to problems as discussed today. In a final chapter something is said about the development of Thomism in modern times
