God in Himself

Aquinas' Doctrine of God as Expounded in the Summa Theologiae

W. J. Hankey

Oxford Theology and Religion Monographs

Through critical exposition of the work and influence of Proclus, and careful analysis of the unfolding of God's being in the first forty-five questions of the Summa Theologiae, Hankey argues that Aquinas was less of an Aristotelian than has traditionally been supposed, and that a proper appreciation of his work requires taking fuller notice of his reliance on neo-Platonism.
