Thomas Aquinas on Bodily Identity

Antonia Fitzpatrick

  • Fundamentally revises the notion of Aquinas's philosophy of human nature that is generally accepted, restoring the significance of the body, as opposed to the soul, for the individuality and identity of a person
  • Illuminates philosophical debates central to late thirteenth and early fourteenth-century thought, and highlights their ongoing interest to modern thinkers
  • Brings central ideas in medieval thought into contact with theologians' polemic with heresy, and the institutional histories of the medieval university and religious orders
