AQUINAS ON TRUTH

The following passages from Thomas Aquinas “Summa Theologiae” constitute something very close to that which, in the terms of modern philosophical logic, would be called a “theory of truth”. In the course of his presentation of objections and responses in this section of the Summa, that is to say, Aquinas generally avoids simple theological platitudes and sets out to provide a relatively coherent account of the fundamental nature and meaning of truth.

Aquinas view of truth, as is the case with so much of his philosophy, is obviously deeply influenced by Aristotle, whom he refers to throughout the Summa simply as “The Philosopher”.
