Quick Overview

"Hause and Murphy are to be congratulated. [Their volume's] strong points are numerous and important. The translation is clear and faithful. A real advantage is using the as yet unpublished Leonine text, which is significantly superior to the Marietti edition. The translators retain the disputed question format. And the whole series is translated. Hause offers an extend commentary which is solid and helpful for beginning readers. . . . Even for Aquinas, who semper loquitur formalissime, first rate translations are hard to come by; and we have one here. . . . A gem."
     —R. E. Houser, University of St. Thomas (Houston, TX), in Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"Hause and Murphy's translation rests on the provisional Latin text established by the Leonine commission, the best version currently available. . . . [The translators] take a conservative approach, keeping quite close to the Latin and adopting conventional translations of scholastic terms, such as passion for 'passio' and prudence for 'prudentia.' . . . Hause's commentary does much to clarify what Aquinas does and does not mean by a 'habitus.' On this and countless other topics, it explains Aquinas' thinking in terms comprehensible to beginners but without being boring to specialists. . . . A significant contribution to the study of Aqunias."
