The De Malo represents some of St. Thomas Aquinas' most mature thinking on goodness, badness, and human agency. Together with the second part of the Summa Theologiae, it is one of his most sustained contributions to moral philosophy and theology. Aquinas examines the full range of questions associated with evil: its origin, its nature, its variety, its relation to good, and its compatibility with the existence of an omnipotent, benevolent God. This edition offers the Leonine Commission's authoritative edition of the Latin text with a new, clear, and readable English translation by Richard Regan with an extensive introduction and notes by Brian Davies.

Brian Davies, Professor of Philosophy, both at Fordham University.Review:
"Regan's translation is as felicitous and faithful as can be. [Davies' and Regan's] work together is splendid. Not only do they offer us an important translation upon which researchers can readily rely, but by editing and presenting it as they do, they propose that we turn to these disputed
questions in order to understand and convey more accurately the maturity of Thomas' thought in philosophy and theology, in ethics and morality. "Invaluable" will be the word assciated with this particular edition."-- Theological Studies
