Aquinas and the Philosophy of Nature 5th Annual Philosophy Workshop

Location: Mount Saint Mary College, Newburgh, NY

Once again this year, the Center is cosponsoring the Thomistic Institute's Philosophy Workshop at Mount Saint Mary's College. This year, the workshop will explore the key principles in Aquinas’ philosophy of nature. How does St. Thomas understand nature and causation? Is his approach compatible with those of the modern sciences? What, for Aquinas, does it mean to understand the particular character of human nature, and how do material realities themselves suggest the necessary existence of immaterial realities (the human soul and God)?
