For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.

Although Rogers bills his work modestly as a "series of correctives", what is innovative about this volume is the way in which he uses Aquinas's biblical commentaries to reframe our reading of the Summa.
From this he makes a clear case not just that Aquinas's ideas about natural law cannot be separated from his theology and somehow rendered in a secular form, or that what Aquinas is actually concerned with is the failure of natural law, but also that natural law itself is deeply marked by religion, gender, ethnicity, and history: that Aquinas places natural law inside a "narrative of God's dealings with two religio-ethnic groups, Jews and Gentiles". Scrupulous in its scholarship, this is a watershed book, which demonstrates with clarity how egregiously and often Aquinas's name has been taken in vain and co-opted to the agendas of others.
Naturally, not everyone will agree with Rogers, and some may even blanch at the title of several chapters in this enlightening volume, not least chapter 12, "How the Semen of the Spirit Genders the Gentiles". In that case, let the counter-arguments be put forward.
A "must" for the theological-college library, this is not a book that can be ignored by anyone interested in this fascinating and deeply influential Dominican. His starting point is Aquinas's "materialism": his belief that human beings are fundamentally and essentially bodies.
Perhaps the most original insight is found in the opening chapter.
Angels & Angelology
Apart from this, Turner's enthusiasm for his reading of Aquinas sometimes leads him astray, and we might better think of the book not so much as a caricature of Aquinas as the Thomistically inspired reflections of a very 20th-century theologian. It is, in other words, by no means a reliable account of Aquinas's thought, and someone who read the book as though it were would often be somewhat misled.
Turner warns us of this in advance, but in my view the warning is not strong enough. For example, it is crucial to Turner's account of Aquinas that the human soul does not count as "a sort of thing". But Aquinas himself states just the opposite - the soul, albeit a part of a human person, is itself a "this something". Likewise, Aquinas holds that abstracting universal concepts from particular experience involves somehow "thickening" experience as Turner puts it.
But, according to Aquinas, it occurs by considering the essential universal core of a thing "apart from" any extraneous features - "thinning" experience, we might say. And Turner repeats the mistaken view, often found in the literature, that the earliest medieval Latin translations of Aristotle were made from Arabic versions rather than Greek. Aquinas himself almost invariably treats those who disagree with him with respect and politeness.
By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number.
If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion.
A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place.
Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works.
