PL 4140 - The Philosophy of Aquinas

Study of the thought of the thirteenth-century philosopher, known as the “Angelic Doctor.” Special attention is paid to historical influences on his thought as well as to developments that distinguish his philosophy from those of his predecessors and his immediate successors (such as Duns Scotus and William of Ockham). Primarily his views on the relation of faith to reason, on metaphysics, and on the philosophy of human knowing are studied. Some consideration is given to his practical philosophy and to his influence on contemporary thinkers.

Prerequisite: PL 1100  or PL 1150 .
