Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Disintegration of Natural Law Theory: Aquinas to Finnis contains the table of contents and the acknowledgments, and a list of abbreviations. According to Germain Grisez and John Finnis, a pure and fertile concept of natural law can be regained by a drastic reinterpretation of Thomas Aquinas. A reinterpretation that can be carried out only if we remove the distorting filter of Neo-Thomism through which Aquinas is commonly interpreted. In comparison with the abundant historical and idea-historical literature on past formulations of natural law theory, reconstructions in purely theoretical terms are relatively scarce.

Keywords: Germain Grisez; John Finnis; natural law theory
