But what happens if such presuppositions are retained, while the presupposition of faith in redemption is lost? If human nature is deficient and non-human nature is unsupportive, on what can we rely Aquinas on the Twofold Human Good: Reason and Human Happiness in Aquinas's Moral Science? It also contains an extensive bibliography and biographies of the medieval figures discussed and comprehensive indexes that make it all indispensable reference tool for serious reader of medieval thought.
