Rik Van Nieuwenhove

  • Provides an authoritative introduction to key aspects of Aquinas's thought
  • Contains new insights in relation to the nature of contemplation, charity, the relation between theology and philosophy
  • Raises the following important questions: What is truth? How do we come to know anything in this world? Given our reliance on the senses can we know God? What is theology (as the science of God) and how does it relate to philosophical ways of knowing? What is the role of faith and love in our knowledge of God?
  • Offers an interdisciplinary approach engaging with his philosophy, theology, and spirituality
