Questions on the Soul: Quaestiones de Anima

Excerpt

No one has ever questioned the authenticity of the Quaestiones De Anima. This work is attributed to St. Thomas in numerous 13th and early 14th century sources, such as The Stationers' List at the University of Paris, the catalogues of Ptolemy of Lucca, Bernard of Guido, Bartholomew of Capua, Nicolas Trivet, John of Colonna and William of Thoco, as well as similar lists. Detailed information on these sources can be found in three standard works which contain collected information on the writings of St. Thomas: A. Michelitsch, Thomas-Schriften; Mandonnet, Des Ecrits Authentiques de S. Thomas d'Aquin; Grabmann, Die Werke des Hl. Thomas von Aquin (3rd ed.) The best and most recent treatment of St. Thomas' writings is that of James A. Weisheipl, O.P., Friar Thomas d'Aquino, His Life, Thought, and Work. New York, 1974. As a supplement he has A Brief Catalogue of Authentic Works, pp. 355-405. His "brief catalogue" is a summary version, updated, of what Fr. Weisheipl calls the most authoritative study of St. Thomas' works, that of I.T. Eschmann, O.P., A Catalogue of St. Thomas's Works: Bibliographical Notes, in E. Gilson, The Christian Philosophy of St. Thomas Aquinas (New York, Random House, 1956), 381-439.

B. The Title

The title of this work in most editions of the disputed questions of St. Thomas is Quaestio Disputata de Anima or Quaestio Unica de Anima. It is divided into twenty-one articles.
