Book Condition: Good+
109pp., 4to (200 x145 mm). Manuscript on laid paper, in Latin. Written in brown ink in a neat cursive script. Calligraphic and illustrated title page in red and black, with philosophical diagrams on fols. 50r and 80r. Contemporary paneled sheep, gilt, with remnants of twine ties, edges stained red. (worn, lightly stained, insignificant worming, but internally clean). Title page of this present copy records the telling of these Thomistic tracts by Father Franciscus de los Rios to his student D.D. Josepho Emmanueli Guerra in 1767, possibly in Spain or Latin America. Faithful to the aim of Aristotelian philosophy, the scholastics attempted to give an orderly and truly universal, rational view of the universe. All of their accounts are meant to explain the history of the cosmos and provide an outline for the meaning of life itself. The Thomistic Philosophy uses theoretical methods and principles established by Thomas Aquinas (c.1224-1274), to defend and affirm Aristotelian works on reason. Godís existence is legitimized and explained through Aristotelian philosophy. Bookseller Inventory # D4454
