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., monk of Concepcion Abbey. Approbations.
