This chapter explores how Aquinas (philosopher and theologian that he was) thought of the world in general, both as philosopher and theologian. It considers his basic understanding of the world, one that he most certainly does not derive from what he takes to be revelation, but one that can be seen at work (either explicitly or implicitly) even when he is deep into discussions of topics to do with sacra doctrina. It explains some of Aquinas's ideas on being and causation—ideas that are part and parcel of Aquinas's overall view on God and evil.

Keywords:   Thomas Aquinas, philosopher, theologian, world, God, evil, being, causation
