Synopsis:

In this translation of Saint Thomas Aquinas’s The Treatise on Law, R. J. Henle, S.J., a well-known authority on philosophy and jurisprudence, fluently and accurately presents the Latin and English translation of this important work. Henle provides the necessary background for an informed reading of the Treatise, as well as the only in-depth commentary available in English on this text.

The first section of the book contains an introduction to St. Thomas’s life, work, writings, and jurisprudence. Henle discusses the structure of St. Thomas’s magnum opus, Summa Theologiae, from which The Treatise on Law is excerpted. A brief section is included on Scholastic philosophy and also on St. Thomas’s approach to the study of law. Henle then examines Thomas’s definition of a law and the general doctrinal background for the Treatise. Finally Henle explores St. Thomas’s sources, including his use of auctoritates, or authoritative quotations drawn primarily from the Bible, Aristotle, St. Augustine, and St. Isidore of Seville.The second part of the book contains the Latin text of the Treatise presented unit by unit, each followed by the English translation and, when appropriate, by a comment. The Treatise on Law will be of interest to law students, lawyers, judges, and legal scholars. It will also appeal to those interested in St. Thomas’s legal philosophy, such as political scientists,theoretical sociologists, and cultural historians. For philosophers, especially beginners in medieval philosophy, it serves as a good introduction to the thought of St. Thomas. "Distinguished Jesuit scholar R.J. Henle provides us with a text and translation of the Treatise on Law that both locates it in its native habitat and enables it to live a responsible life on its own. Henle has produced a magnificently useful book that should revolutionize courses in moral and political philosophy as well as those in jurisprudence." --Ralph McInerny, author of A First Glance at St. Thomas Aquinas

From the Back Cover: St. Thomas's Summa theologiae is often compared to a medieval cathedral because of its sublime construction both as a work of logic and literary architecture. Here is a mere tip of one of the spires, summarizing the great Saint's views on the nature and structure of law. Believing that law achieves its results by imposing moral obligations rather than outright force, St. Thomas defines the Christian view of liberty. And he asks - and answers - the deep questions: What are the roots of the moral obligations imposed by law? By what warrant does the human legislator bind the consciences of men? Should custom be given the force of law? What are the limits within which men may exercise their power? Aquinas addresses issues that perplex Americans - and their courts - to this day. Now with a new introduction by University of Notre Dame professor of philosophy, medieval scholar, and director of the Jacques Maritain Center, Ralph McInerny.
