About this product
- DescriptionIn this book, Judith Barad offers a fresh treatment of St. Thomas Aquinas' account of faith by emphasizing his distinction between assent and consent. The distinction entails that although intellectual assent is a necessary condition of faith, the consent of the will, issuing in moral activity, is required for faith's completion. Through her analysis of Aquinas' distinction, Barad maintains t only that the traditional characterization of Aquinas as an intellectualist in matters of faith is false, but that Aquinas can shed light on the difference between religious hypocrisy and devotion.
- Author BiographyThe Author: Judith Barad received her Ph.D. at Northwestern University, Evanston. Since 1985, she has taught in the Department of Philosophy at Indiana State University. She is the author of numerous articles on Aquinas.
