First edition of Garrigou-Lagrange's work on Aquinas, a commentary on the first section of the Second Part of the Summa. From his longtime post at the Angelicum, the French Dominican was a formidable defender of the continuity of Scholastic Thomism against the forces of the "nouvelle theologie" gaining currency during the middle of the 20th century. Consists of an Introduction, First Part: The Ultimate Goal, Second Part: Human Acts, Third Part: Morality of Human Acts, Fourth Part: Conscience, Fifth Part: The Passions, Sixth Part: Habits. "An excellent commentary on the section of the Summa on general ethics." (George McLean, An Annotated Bibliography of Philosophy in Catholic Thought). Translated by Patrick Cummins, O.S.B., a Monk of Conception Abbey. Approbations.
