Overview

This is a collection of essays on Aquinas and Wittgenstein. It is inspired by, and dedicated to the memory of Victor Preller, whose interpretations of these figures helped to prepare the ground for recent discussions of religious language, knowledge of God, the role of grace in human life, and the ethical significance of virtue. This book's main purpose is to advance our understanding of the issues on which texts like "Summa Theologiae" and the "Philosophical Investigations" have a bearing.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
It is easy to read with little academic jargon or pedantic footnotes and there is a helpful glossary of terms. The title and sub-title are well chosen. As Saint Paul told the Corinthians, there are varieties of gifts but the same spirit, varieties of services but the same Lord, varieties of activities but the same God who activates all of them in everyone. With this in mind, those involved in, or training for, any kind of ministry should find it a useful resource. David Bunch, Quarterly Review of the Community of the Resurrection, N°413, 2006.
