This first book-length treatment of Thomas Aquinas'stheory of the body presents a Catholic understandingof the body and its implications for social and politicalphilosophy. Making a fundamental contribution toantitotalitarian theory, McAleer argues that a sexual politicsreliant upon Aquinas's theory of the body is better (becauseless violent) than other commonly available theories.He contrasts this theory with those of four other groupsof thinkers: the continental tradition represented by Kant,Schopenhauer, Merleau-Ponty, Nancy, Levinas, and Deleuze;feminism, in the work of Donna Haraway; an alternativeCatholic theory to be found in Karl Rahner; and theRadical Orthodoxyof John Milbank.


G. J. McAleer is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Loyola College in Maryland and the editor, with Guy Guldentrops, of Henry Bate, Speculum divinorum et quorundam naturalium, books 8-10.


"Making a fundamental contribution to antitotalitarian theory, G. J. McAleer argues that a sexual politics reliant upon Aquinas's theory of the body is better (because less violent) than other commonly available theories."
