Thomas Aquinas : a historical and philosophical profile by Pasquale Porro( )

11 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of ideas in Thomas Aquinas's philosophical thinking has been the subject of numerous smaller studies but no contemporary work in the English-speaking world covers his every single work in chronological order in terms of philosophical developments, influences, manuscript evidence, and historical setting. Pasquale Porro has provided a complete landscape of Thomas's corpus that will give Thomistic scholars and students an invaluable reference point for research, discussion, and debate. Porro's chronological approach contrasts with the systematic and thematic approach of existing summaries of Thomas's "philosophy, " many of which provided only the thinnest historical contextualization and minimal accounts of influences. Beginning with the De principus naturae and the De ente et essentia, composed while Thomas was still a young "bachelor of the Sentences, " and concluding with a letter to the abbot of Monte Cassino, written shortly before his death in 1274, Porro meticulously sets each of the Angelic Doctor's writings in its unique historical context, indicating developments and changes of mind, and extensively analyzing the full range of philosophical influences from Aristotle, Augustine, Proclus, and Pseudo-Dionysius to Maimonides, Avicenna, and Averroes, among others. Throughout the book he offers commentary on the existence and state of manuscripts and critical editions of Thomas's various texts, giving the reader a glimpse of the condition of the primary sources available to scholars. As he moves from one writing to the next, Porro also presents a finely wrought portrait of the Dominican master's life. Unlike many expositions of Thomas's thought, which relegate his biography to an introductory chapter, Porro works the biographical details into his interpretation of the texts, making them an essential part of his account of the historical circumstances in which Thomas wrote, thereby enhancing the reader's understanding of his texts. Porro's interpretation of the philosophical dimension of Thomas's work challenges certain prevalent twentieth century interpretations on such topics as epistemological realism, the relationship between essence and existence, and creaturely contingency. Nevertheless, even scholars who disagree with him on particular points will have much to gain from this meticulously-researched and clearly-written study. --

Tommaso d'Aquino : un profilo storico-filosofico by Pasquale Porro( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2019 in Italian and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Non c'è dubbio che Tommaso d'Aquino rappresenti uno dei pensatori più importanti e influenti dell'intera storia del pensiero occidentale, e non solo della tradizione cattolica. Tuttavia la grande fioritura di studi nel Novecento ha in generale privilegiato solo alcuni aspetti del suo pensiero, costruendo un'immagine piuttosto statica e dogmatica del maestro domenicano. Questo profilo cerca invece di restituire a Tommaso la sua dimensione storica, proponendo sia una ricostruzione complessiva, in ordine cronologico, della struttura e delle circostanze di composizione delle sue opere che la presentazione e discussione dei temi filosofici più significativi presenti in ciascuna di esse, anche in rapporto alle fonti con cui lo stesso Tommaso non ha mai smesso di dialogare nel corso della sua carriera - da Aristotele alla tradizione neoplatonica, da Agostino e Boezio ad Avicenna e Averroè."--Front inside flap of cover
