St. Thomas Aquinas (–) was a systematic thinker. He developed his philosophy and theology within an intellectual framework called metaphysics. In our times it seems necessary to add that he worked within classical metaphysics, the one founded by Aristotle. It is hard to understand Aquinas’s arguments without knowing the principles.

His influence is primarily due to his synthesis of Aristotelian philosophy with Christian theology, as well as the breadth and systematic rigor of his writings.

The Semantic Principles Underlying Saint Thomas Aquinas's Metaphysics of Being. by Gyula Klima (Medieval Philosophy and Theology, (5), pp. ) Introduction: Semantics and Metaphysics. As I hope the title clearly indicates, this paper is not intended to contribute its ounces to the tons of literature on Aquinas's metaphysics of being.
