Ralph McInerney shows how the basic assumptions of Thomism contrast with dominant modern alternative views.
These 16/32-bit single chip digital signal processors offer an inexpensive alternative to custom VLSI and multichip bit-slice processors for many applications. Thomism is based on the assumption that we know the world first through concepts formed on the basics of sensory experience. McInerny (medieval studies, U. of Notre Dame) shows how this assumption contrasts with dominant modern alternative views, and is developed by Thomas into a coherent view of ourselves, of knowledge, and of God. Better than the cocktail party-title would suggest. Cloth edition (unseen), $19.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
