Thomist Foundations - History and Metaphysics of the Concept of the Person

Available Fall 2017

The first semester of our 2017-2020 Person, Soul and Consciousness Project will be a collaborative research effort undertaken by students and DSPT faculty. We will produce an edition of texts by Thomas Aquinas that are relevant to the topic. In order to make a Thomist contribution to the contemporary discussions, it will be necessary to identify the pertinent texts. Under the guidance of faculty members, students will divide up the research, produce translations (especially where they are not yet available) and commentaries.  We hope to publish this written work as a collaborative effort. Students will gain experience in the publishing process. Knowledge of Latin is helpful but not required.

Seminar coordinator: John Thomas Mellein, OP
