20th Century Thomism

Professor:  Fr. Justin Gable, OP

This course is intended for those already familiar with the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas, studying the contemporary Thomist revival inspired by Pope Leo XIII's encyclical, Aeterni Patris. The course will be conducted in seminar style and will focus on the engagement and development of the thought of St. Thomas by key figures such as Maritain, Gilson, Simon, Pieper, Marechal, and Lonergan. The class will cover such topics as the Thomistic response to post-Kantian critical philosophy, the idea of a Christian philosophy, and Thomistic contributions to aesthetics, the philosophy of science, and theories of ethical obligation and language.
