Aquinas needs no introduction as one of the greatest minds of the middle ages. Highly influential on the development of Christian doctrine, his ideas are still of fundamental philosophical importance. This new critique of his natural law theory discusses the theory's background in Aristotle and advances new interpretations of contemporary legal issues which hark back to Aquinas.

Anthony J. Lisska is at Denison University, Ohio.Review:
"Philosophical controversies over natural law have immediate relevance to conflicts of everyday life ... not the least valuable feature of Anthony J. Lisska's lively and illuminating discussion is his catalogue of positions taken by participants in those controversies ... there are a number of stimulating discussions that deserve independent treatment, notably that of human rights. Lisska's elegant prose-style and clarity of exposition combine to make his book a pleasure to read. It deserves a wider audience than do most academic books."--Alasdair MacIntyre, Duke University, International Philosophical Quarterly Vol. XXXVII, No. 1 Issue No. 145 (March 1997)
