Author(s)
Overview
This is a ground-breaking study that has the capacity to transform the relationship between psychoanalytic theory and Christian theology. Reading the theology of Thomas Aquinas in close engagement with the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan, Tina Beattie shows how Thomism exerted a formative influence on Lacan, and she also shows how a Lacanian approach can bring rich new insights to Thomas's theology. This book will be of interest to a wide range of scholarly readers, including not only Thomist theologians and Lacanian theorists but also those interested in the study of feminism and gender theory, theories of language and ethics, and theoretical approaches to the study of religions. It is an illustration of how an inter-disciplinary approach can inform a quest for knowledge that goes beyond the superficialities of postmodern theory to ask searching questions about wisdom, meaning, and truth.
