Other Commentaries

The Other Commentaries is a collection of the few commentaries by St. Thomas that are neither Scriptural nor Aristotelian. They record St. Thomas’s exploration into the thought of such writers as Boethius and Pseudo-Dionysius, both influential in St. Thomas’s day. The Other Commentaries show the contact that St. Thomas had with Neo-Platonism as well as showing his attentive consideration of it. As such, they show an important side of St. Thomas. This is where St. Thomas’s Aristotelian thought meets and engages with Neo-Platonism in a rich dialogue. Exploring the thought of Boethius and Pseudo-Dionysius, as well as the De Causis, in these Other Commentaries with St. Thomas as guide will enlighten your understanding of these authors and of St. Thomas.
