By Étienne Gilson

In this deeply personal work, Étienne Gilson tasks himself with fulfilling the Delphic maxim,“Know thyself,” recounting the uncertainties and missteps in his lifelong pursuit of the truth, his devoted conviction to the sure and certain existence of God, and his abiding concern that others might also discover the wisdom he has come to know and love.

An engrossing autobiography and illuminating historical study, The Philosopher and Theology provides abundant insights into the ebb and flow of twentieth-century Thomist thought in addition to its compelling vision of reflective and rigorous Catholic scholarship.

Étienne Gilson (1884–1978) was a French philosopher and historian of philosophy and one of the premier Catholic intellectuals of the twentieth century. Over the course of his illustrious career, he founded the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies in Toronto, was elected to the Académie française, and wrote over one hundred and seventy books.
