'Jacques Maritain', says Etienne Gilson, 'is growing greater and greater with the years, and I am not sure that even we, who admire him so much, are fully alive to the lasting significance of his work.' And T.S. Eliot has called him 'the most conspicuous figure and probably the most powerful force in contemporary philosophy.'

In Art and Scholasticism and The Frontiers of Poetry, Dr. Maritain seeks to combat the widespread tendency to judge a work of art by extraneous moral standards rather than by aesthetic standards. At the same time he clarifies the relationship between morality and art, stressing the latter's autonomy. In another sense too this is a pioneer work because it goes a long way towards developing, for the first time, a theory of art based on the concepts of St. Thomas Aquinas. The continued demand for this classic and Dr. Maritain's wish to have a fresh translation made, have resulted in the present version which carries the author's full approval. Included here, besides the main essays on 'Art and Scholasticism' and 'The Frontiers of Poetry,' are four appendices: 'An Essay on Art,' 'Some Reflections on Religious Art,' 'The Triomphe de Saint Thomas' at the Theatre,' and 'Apropos and Article by Montgomery Belgion,' (the last two new to this edition), plus Dr. Maritain's copious 

Jacques Maritain (18 November 1882 – 28 April 1973) was a French Catholic philosopher. Raised as a Protestant, he became an agnostic before converting to Catholicism in 1906. An author of more than 60 books, he helped to revive St. Thomas Aquinas for modern times, and was influential in the development and drafting of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Pope Paul VI presented his "Message to Men of Thought and of Science" at the close of Vatican II to Maritain, his long-time friend and mentor. Maritain's interest and works spanned many aspects of philosophy, including aesthetics, political theory, philosophy of science, metaphysics, the nature of education, liturgy and ecclesiology.
