Aquinas and Empowerment

Classical Ethics for Ordinary Lives
  • By James F., S.J. Keenan
  • By G. Simon Harak
  • By Harak G
$29.95

Applying the ethical concepts of Thomas Aquinas to contemporary moral problems, this book both presents new interpretations of Thomist theology and offers new insights into today's perplexing moral dilemmas. This volume addresses such contemporary issues as internalized oppression, especially as it relates to women and African-Americans; feminism and anger; child abuse; friendship and charity; and finally, justice and reason.

The collection revives Aquinas as an ethicist who has relevant things to say about contemporary concerns. These essays illustrate how Thomistic ethics can encourage and empower people in moral struggles. As the first book to use Aquinas to explore such issues as child abuse and oppression, it includes a variety of approaches to Aquinas's ethics.

Aquinas and Empowerment is a valuable resource for students of classical thought and contemporary ethics.
