The Book of Causes =: Liber de Causis Reviews

    The Liber de causis is a central text in medieval theology and philosophy; traditionally attributed to Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas discovered that it in fact appeared to be extracts from The Elements of Theology by the Neoplatonist Proclus. (This discovery led Thomas to write his own commentary on the Liber de causis late in his career, even in the midst of writing the Summa theologiae and various commentaries on the works of Aristotle. See Commentary on the Book of Causes.) This brief text gave shape to medieval discussions concerning causality, hierarchy, and the One and the many. It would prove especially important in the early Franciscan intellectual tradition; Bonaventure would cite it in support of his position that the first being is the most fecund by virtue of its priority.The translation is fine, if a little awkward at times. (The translator admits in his Introduction that some awkwardness was inevitable, owing both to his modest aim of providing a literal translation of the Latin and to the fact that the Latin text is itself already a translation.) I do find it surprising that the publisher chose not to include the Latin text on facing pages, since the text itself is so short. (But, I suppose there may be legal considerations that may complicate the printing of the Latin.) It would have been helpful to have the Latin handy for clarifying some of the translation choices. Still, having an English translation available is an important contribution to the study of the sources of medieval philosophy and theology.
