Aristotle, De Anima, and Aquinas

Alliteration always amuses me a lot.

Sorry about that. I’ve got it out of my system now.

I have written about St. Thomas’ commentary on De Anima before. I am going to do it again. Seriously: if you have any interest at all in Aristotle and/or Aquinas (and you should), this commentary is simply not to be missed. It is a tour de force, one of the best works of Aquinas that I have read. A lot of problems might have been avoided if Descartes and a few others I could name had read and understood this commentary. Yes, there are other (and undoubtedly more important) things Aquinas wrote that they should have read too, but this one is special. I commend it to you, dear reader.
