Abstract
IN A STUDY PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED in this journal, I concentrated on Thomas Aquinas's theory of truth of being. Using a text from book 1, dist. 19, qu. 5, art. 1 of the commentary on the Sentences as my point of departure, I attempted to discern Thomas's answer to this question: If truth is assigned to things only analogically because of their ability to cause truth in the intellect, is truth formally and intrinsically present in things themselves or only in the intellect? Without repeating the details of my analysis here, my conclusion was that, having introduced appropriate distinctions, Thomas holds that truth is formally and intrinsically present in things themselves. But this applies to truth only when it is taken broadly, not when it is taken strictly.
