Summary
"Thomas Aquinas, the most influential of Christian philosopher-theologians, as also one of the great students of logic and language. Here his doctrine of God is subjected to an audacious analysis, advanced with the precision and order that characterises recent work in logical theory and the philosophy of language. The study is designed to lead the reader into an appreciation of the power of Aquinas' philosophical wit, as he directs it towards unravelling what we might say or not say about that which is literally indescribable: divinity." -- From inside front cover
