Taking as its place to begin Aquinas's overlooked definition of advantage when it comes to its "causes," this booklet bargains a scientific research of Aquinas at the nature, genesis, and position of advantage in human life.

With an method that's distinctively theological but strongly conversant with philosophy, this research will supply experts a daring new interpretation of Aquinas’s advantage idea whereas giving scholars a scientific creation with recommended readings from his Summa Theologiae and at the Virtues.
