Aquinas on Being and Essence: A Translation and InterpretationBaker & Taylor
In Aquinas on Being and Essence: A Translation and Interpretation, Joseph Bobik interprets the doctrines put forth by St. Thomas Aquinas in his treatise On Being and Essence. He foregrounds the meaning of the important distinction between first and second intentions, the differing uses of the term "matter," and the Thomistic conception of metaphysics.
"This book has but one aim: to present an intelligible interpretation of the doctrines put forth by St. Thomas Aquinas in his treatise On Being and Essence. It considers uses of the words 'being' and 'essence,' it investigates the essence of natural substances, the immateriality of the human soul, and the existence and the essence of God." —Catholic Book Review
