Publisher's Summary

Saint Thomas Aquinas, an Italian philosopher and Dominican friar who lived during the 13th century, was the greatest of the medieval theologians. His writings harmonized faith and reason, which resulted in a Christian form of rationalism.
This treatise comprises questions 90–97 of the Summa Theologica, in which St. Thomas presents a philosophical analysis of the nature and structure of law. Believing that law achieves its results by imposing moral obligations rather than outright force on those subject to it, he proceeds to explore vital questions about the essence of law, kinds of law, effects of law, eternal law, natural law, human law, and changes in law.

Not a good audiobook

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book would be enjoyed by someone who might have only a passing interest in its subject matter.

What was most disappointing about Thomas Aquinas’s story?

The book is not designed to be heard, it is designed to be read and studied

How could the performance have been better?

If this was a story that you could follow, or a train of thought to be understood by its explanation it would be a fantastic audiobook
