Read full description of the books Um lög:Tómas af Aquino var einn mesti hugsuður kirkjunnar á miðöldum og jafnframt einn merkasti heimspekingur vesturlanda fyrr og síðar. Í ritinu, sem enn í dag er grundvallarrit bæði í lögfræði og heimspeki, er fjallað um eðli laga, m.a. hvort lögum sé ætíð skipað til almannaheilla, hvort til séu eilíf lög, hvort til séu lög lostans og hvort lög manna skuldbindi samvisku manna. Í inngangi segir Garðar Gíslason frá ævi Tómasar og gerir grein fyrir meginhugmyndum hans um eðli laga.
Read information about the authorThomas Aquinas (sometimes styled Thomas of Aquin or Aquino), was a Dominican friar and priest notable as a scholastic theologian and philosopher. He is honored as a saint and "Doctor of the Church" in the Roman Catholic tradition.
Aquinas lived at a critical juncture of western culture when the arrival of the Aristotelian corpus in Latin translation reopened the question of the relation between faith and reason, calling into question the modus vivendi that had obtained for centuries. This crisis flared up just as universities were being founded. Thomas, after early studies at Montecassino, moved on to the University of Naples, where he met members of the new Dominican Order. It was at Naples too that Thomas had his first extended contact with the new learning. When he joined the Dominican Order he went north to study with Albertus Magnus, author of a paraphrase of the Aristotelian corpus. Thomas completed his studies at the University of Paris, which had been formed out of the monastic schools on the Left Bank and the cathedral school at Notre Dame. In two stints as a regent master Thomas defended the mendicant orders and, of greater historical importance, countered both the Averroistic interpretations of Aristotle and the Franciscan tendency to reject Greek philosophy. The result was a new modus vivendi between faith and philosophy which survived until the rise of the new physics. The Catholic Church has over the centuries regularly and consistently reaffirmed the central importance of Thomas's work for understanding its teachings concerning the Christian revelation, and his close textual commentaries on Aristotle represent a cultural resource which is now receiving increased recognition.
