  1. David Haines David Haines says:

    McCabe's introduction to Auinas is a lecture series which was edited by Brian Davies It is an interesting approach to the thought of Auinas written by a prominent analytical thomist He is clearly influenced by both the Angelic doctor and the writings of Wittgenstein He interacts a great deal with Anthony Kenny whom he occassionally agrees with but often disagrees with This is a very helpful introduction which should be read by every contemporary thinker Period


  2. Jennifer Jennifer says:

    McCabe is very much of the generation of Anscombe Geach and Kenny and it shows this is of course a compliment He possesses that altogether rare ability to say brilliant and true things in an utterly unpretentious and downright conversational style It is clear that he has so thoroughly assimilated the thought of Aristotle Auinas and Wittgenstein that he can discuss their essential insights without so much as referring to any text or historical problematic; he simply speaks about the issues in a way that immediately grips your attention and helps you to see how a certain tradition of thought has responded to them I had never heard of McCabe until this year when I was at a conference on Alasdair MacIntyre I wish I had discovered him sooner


  3. Lyndon Lyndon says:

    In this series of lectures on Auinas McCabe treats the reader to a digestible introduction to the philosophy of the great doctor of the church Bereft of unnesessary jargon and chock full of humour McCabe provides a model of doing philosophy with Auinas that is than just a study of philosophy


  4. Colin Heber-Percy Colin Heber-Percy says:

    Conversational salty and insightful McCabe's idiosyncratic introduction to Auinas's thought is wonderful wise witty and eminently readable For McCabe accurate philosophical engagement with the world went on sabbatical between Descartes and Marx in other words the Enlightenment and its corollary Romanticism were philosophical deserts And in this book he lets rip with his customary wit and precision at various targets These are effectively transcripts of a series of lectures and they make very entertaining reading


  5. Shaun Brown Shaun Brown says:

    Since On Auinas stems from lectures given by McCabe and later edited by his literary executed Brian Davies it's not the best written book in the world but it's an enjoyable and insightful read I would recommend it to people interested in Auinas McCabe postliberalism Wittgenstein and philosophy of language or similar topics
