Pseudo-Dionysius and the Metaphysics of Aquinas: 32 (Studien und Texte zur Geistesgeschichte des Mittelalters)

This work investigates the influence of Pseudo-Dionysius with respect to the central themes of Aquinas' metaphysics: knowledge of the Absolute and its nature as transcendent; Being as primary and universal perfection; the diffusion of creation; the hierarchy of creatures; and the return of all to God as final end. By concrete example and continual reference it illustrates both the pervasive influence of Pseudo-Dionysius and the profound originality of Aquinas.
