Write a paper on Thomas’s views regarding human speech about God: the different kinds of speech about God, what we can rightly say about God and what we cannot: that is, the possibility and the limits of “God-talk”. You are to base your paper on what Aquinas has to say about this matter in his Summa (that is, question 13, and especially articles 1, 3, 5, 7, 10, 11, and 12). You will offer your own evaluation in summary: what you think is clearest about his entire position on this subject, what seems to you most debatable in it, and why. There is no need to footnote the text of Aquinas, unless it is not from our primary source. Please cite Aquinas.

Please use only Question 13 and the articles given (the question is titled “The Names of God”).
