Aquinas's Theology of Politics

William McCormick, SJ, has written a new and welcome interpretation of Thomas Aquinas as a political thinker. His reading of Aquinas suggests that the political common good, as an intermediary between human and divine things, is a subject for ongoing inquiry, sensitive to the exigencies of a fallen world. McCormick holds that the "pedagogy of politics" unfolds teleologically as a community - in and through common deliberation and action - comes to greater knowledge of itself and its own ends.
