St Thomas Aquinas on Radio 4

Melvyn Bragg and his weekly philosophy programme on Radio 4 looks at St Thomas Aquinas today.

From the BBC website:
Melvyn Bragg discusses the life, works and enduring influence of the medieval philosopher and theologian St Thomas Aquinas with Martin Palmer, John Haldane and Annabel Brett.

St Thomas Aquinas' ideas remain at the heart of the official doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church today and inform philosophical debates on human rights, natural law and what constitutes a 'just war'.

Martin Palmer is Director of the International Consultancy on Religion, Education and Culture; John Haldane is Professor of Philosophy at the University of St Andrews; Annabel Brett is Lecturer in History at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge.

I hope to listen again later or hear the edited version on Radio 4 this evening.

  1. What an excellent programme; exactly the sort of output that the licence fee should be used for! I fully recommend it to all readers.
