This critique of Aquinas's theory of natural law presents an analysis of the central themes and relevant texts in the ""Summa Theologiae"" which became the classical canon for natural law. Professor Lisska discusses Aquinas's view of ethical naturalism within the context of the contemporary revival and recovery of Aristotelian ethics, arguing that Aquinas is fundamentally Aristotelian in the foundations of his moral theory.

The book looks at the historical development of natural law themes in the 20th century, and in particular demonstrates the important connections between Aquinas and contemporary legal philosophers.
