Commentary on the Sentences: Philosophy of God - Works of St. Bonaventure Volume XVI

Bonaventure Texts in Translation Series
translations introduction and notes by RE Houser and Timothy B. Noone

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Without exception, every word of philosophy Bonaventure ever wrote is contained in works explicitly religious - in sermons, works of spiritual direction, and theology. For this reason, we begin by looking at Bonaventure’s conception of theology and the place of philosophical reasoning within it. In his attempt to present a theology that is a “science” which leads us to “wisdom,” Bonaventure uses language that might at first glance seem to be merely metaphorical. However, Bonaventure’s care in using precise and philosophical language to understand God is a tribute to the optimism the greatest Masters of Theology at mid-thirteenth century Paris had in the rational possibilities of the human mind.
This volume has not been designed to cover all the profound points Br. Bonaventure made in treating God philosophically in his Commentary. Instead, it highlights a few critical issues, giving the reader a preliminary view of the whole, before plunging into the vast and refreshing pool that is Bonaventure’s “philosophy of God.”

He taught at Paris for some time and was known as the Plain and Perspicuous Doctor (Doctor planus et perspicuus). Burleigh figured prominently in the dispute concerning the nature of universals.
