A. "SEPARATE ingredients" AND lOR" ANGELS"? it truly is attention-grabbing to notice that, in an expressly theological treatise reminiscent of the Summa theologiae, St. Thomas normally makes use of the time period "angel", rather than "separate substance"; whereas in works with a much less particular theological rationale - e. g. the Summa contra gentiles and the De substantiis separatis 1 - he mostly prefers the time period "separate substance". yet at any cost there's little question that the 2 phrases, "separate sub­ stance" and "angel" have a undeniable interchangeability and equivalence within the works of St. Thomas. In different phrases, "the separate substance" is such as "the angel, insofar as its life and attributes are knowable via human cause alone". And this has led Karl Barth 2 to cost that St. Thomas' angelology is basically a philosophical presenta­ tion, with little relevance to theology. 1 we'd say that those works are "philosophical" insofar as arguments from cause are emphasised in them, instead of arguments from revelation or religion. even if, as Lescoe issues out (in the creation to his version of the De substantUs separatis, p. 8), the treatise on separate elements leads as much as theological subject-matter in Ch. 's XVII ff- specifically, an exposition of Catholic educating as present in Sacred Scripture, the Fathers, and particularly Dionysius. And Chenu keeps that the Summa contra gentiles is largely a theological paintings, since it not just leads as much as theological subject-matter in Bk.

「昭和」が終わり二十年が経とうとしている。その六十余年の歴史には、目まぐるしい思想変遷があった。戦前―戦後という大きな断絶、六〇年安保、七〇年大学闘争、オイルショック、ポストモダン、バブル経済……。時代意識の転換はいかに起き、作家や学者たちはどのような発言をしたのか。マルクス主義の人間学を樹立しようとした三木清、大衆の肉体主義を批判した丸山真男、大衆の自立こそが変革の出発点だとした吉本隆明をはじめ、芥川龍之介、柳田国男、福田恆存、三島由紀夫など、彼らの功罪を含めて果敢に批評。ベトナム戦争をめぐって開高健をやり玉にあげた吉本隆明や、丸谷才一の「国家論」に噛み付いた江藤淳などのエピソードも印象深い。また、八〇年代以降、西部邁や小室直樹、浅田彰が登場してきた必然性を考察。司馬遼太郎、長谷川慶太郎といった思想家の範疇におさまらない人物が登場するのも斬新である。豊饒な昭和思想史を総括した記念碑的労作。
