Quick Overview

“Pasnau’s fine translation renders Aquinas’ Latin into contemporary English prose that avoids, as much as possible, scholastic as well as contemporary jargon. The translation is precise, but technical only when it has to be, and should give readers a very good sense for what Aquinas was trying to accomplish. The commentary will be exceptionally useful to readers at all levels. Those unfamiliar with Aquinas will find helpful introductions and guides, while even scholars will find useful hints and convincing corrections of time-honored mistakes.”

“This very readable and accurate translation of the so-called Treatise on Human Nature strikes the right balance between literal rendition of Aquinas’ Latin and naturalness of English expression, and thus will be of use both to new students of Aquinas and to those familiar with the original Latin. The commentary on the text should make the translation especially suitable for use in courses on Aquinas’ philosophy of human nature and theory of knowledge.”
