The metaphysics of theism : Aquinas's natural theology in Summa contra gentiles I by Norman Kretzmann( )

39 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and held by 1,818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Metaphysics of Theism presents an explanation and evaluation of Aquinas's natural theology, the paradigm of which is the first book of the Summa contra gentiles. But in addition to considering this as a monumental achievement of medieval philosophy, Norman Kretzmann approaches it as a continuing enterprise that can be developed with considerable benefit in contemporary philosophy. Professor Kretzmann argues that natural theology offers the most appropriate route by which philosophers can, as philosophers, approach theological propositions, and that the one presented in this book is the best available natural theology
The metaphysics of creation : Aquinas's natural theology in Summa contra gentiles II by Norman Kretzmann( )

34 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 1,724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Norman Kretzmann expounds and criticizes Aquinas's natural theology of creation, which is 'natural' (or philosophical) in virtue of Aquinas's having developed it without depending on the data of Scripture. The Metaphysics of Creation is a continuation of the project Kretzmann began in The Metaphysics of Theism, moving the focus from the first to the second book of Aquinas's Summa contra gentiles."--BOOK JACKET
The Cambridge history of later medieval philosophy : from the rediscovery of Aristotle to the disintegration of scholasticism, 1100-1600 by Norman Kretzmann( Book )

69 editions published between 1981 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 1,567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 1982 book is a history of the great age of scholastism from Abelard to the rejection of Aristotelianism in the Renaissance, combining the highest standards of medieval scholarship with a respect for the interests and insights of contemporary philosophers, particularly those working in the analytic tradition. The volume follows on chronologically from The Cambridge History of Later Greek and Early Medieval Philosophy, though it does not continue the histories of Greek and Islamic philosophy but concentrates on the Latin Christian West. Unlike other histories of medieval philosophy that divide the subject matter by individual thinkers, it emphasises the parts of more historical and theological interest. This volume is organised by those topics in which recent philosophy has made the greatest progress
The Cambridge companion to Aquinas by Norman Kretzmann( Book )

47 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 1,405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among the great philosophers of the Middle Ages Aquinas is unique in pursuing two apparently disparate projects. On the one hand he developed a philosophical understanding of Christian doctrine in a fully integrated system encompassing all natural and supernatural reality. On the other hand, he was convinced that Aristotle's philosophy afforded the best available philosophical component of such a system. In a relatively brief career Aquinas developed these projects in great detail and with an astonishing degree of success. In this volume ten leading scholars introduce all the important aspects of Aquinas' thought, ranging from its historical background and dependence on Greek, Islamic, and Jewish philosophy and theology, through the metaphysics, epistemology and ethics, to the philosophical approach to Biblical commentary

Meaning and Inference in Medieval Philosophy : Studies in Memory of Jan Pinborg by Norman Kretzmann( )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The studies that make up this book were written and brought together to honor the memory of Jan Pinborg. His unexpected death in 1982 at the age of forty-five shocked and saddened students of medieval philosophy everywhere and left them with a keen sense of disappoint ment. In his fifteen-year career Jan Pinborg had done so much for our field with his more than ninety books, editions, articles, and reviews and had done it all so well that we recognized him as a leader and counted on many more years of his scholarship, his help, and his friendship. To be missed so sorely by his international colleagues in an academic field is a mark of Jan's achievement, but only of one aspect of it, for historians of philosophy are not the only scholars who have reacted in this way to Jan's death. In his decade and a half of intense productivity he also acquired the same sort of special status among historians of linguistics, whose volume of essays in his memory is being G.L. Bursill-Hall almost simultane published under the editorship of ously with this one. Sten Ebbesen, Jan's student, colleague, and successor as Director of the Institute of Medieval Greek and Latin Philology at the University of Copenhagen, has earned the gratitude of all of us by memorializing Jan 1 in various biographical sketches, one of which is accompanied by a 2 complete bibliography of his publications
