8vo 302pp. First paperback edition 2001. This copy is from the library of a Professor of Philosophy with his underlining and notations in pencil. The Metaphysics of Theism presents and 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.
