Aquinas's Way to God

The Proof in De Ente et Essentia

Gaven Kerr,OP

  • First full length study of this proof in the thought of Aquinas
  • Ties in this proof of God with other aspects of Aquinas's metaphysics that have come to the fore in recent Thomistic studies, e.g. essence/existence composition, participation, creation
  • Defends the controversial thesis that God exists and can be known to exist in a philosophically satisfactory fashion
  • proposes what by today's standards is a new theory for thinking of the relationship between creatures and creator
