5.0 out of 5 stars Very good examination of how we come to know, 18 Jan 2013

This review is from: Thomist Realism: And the Critique of Knowledge (Paperback)
Gilson's book is a wonderful examination of several epistemological theories stemming from Thomistc-Aristotelian Realism and yet somehow influenced by Descartes and Kant. I found the writing style very engaging and the occasional splash of humour and sarcasm well placed. There are those who would criticise Gilson for an overly existential approach to Thomism in some of his later work, but I didn't think that was a problem here. His summary of Thomistic Realism towards the end of the book and his general demolition of the 'Thomistic cogito' and 'critical realism' throughout it are wonderful and hopefully gave Lonergan and the other 'transcendental thomists' a few things to think about.
