Aquinas's Theory of Natural Law

An Analytic Reconstruction

Anthony J. Lisska

A Clarendon Press Publication

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.
