'A Catholic Christian Meta-Model of the Person' resituates the person in his proper context as a composite creature who is a profound union of body and soul.
THE SLAYER OF THEOLOGICAL BEASTS
John A. Perricone
Catholics must again lean their heads upon the wisdom of St. Thomas, as he often leaned his head on the tabernacle as he wrote.
Jason M. Morgan
Man is part of the world and also separate from it, embedded in a spiritual hierarchy that stretches infinitely beyond what we can see, touch, and hear.
David D. Jividen
The tension between God’s will and human freedom is resolved in a manner that acknowledges the transcendence of God’s nature.
Thomism is an integral part of the millennial flow of Western thought and cannot simply be consigned to the dustbin of misguided and superseded systems of philosophy.
THE ULTIMATE HERESY
Instead of completely erasing references to “the Word,” Muhammad attributed them to the Qur’an, thus making the book he received the true Logos of the Creator.
ON THE PRESENCE & ABSENCE OF THINGS
James V. Schall
Modern philosophy has had difficulty relating what goes on in the human mind to what is “out there” in reality. How to bridge this gap is the task phenomenology sets for itself.
THE DANGER OF “DOUBLE TRUTH”
The effort of the Church to come to terms with the modern world too often assumes that contemporary culture is neutral when, in fact, it is closed to the transcendent.
ON "DOING" CATHOLIC THEOLOGY
ADAPTING "THE APOLOGETICS OF YESTERDAY" TO TODAY
THE RISE & FALL OF THE THOMISTIC RENEWAL — PART II
It is imperative that what Pope Leo began be begun anew — for the simple reason that there is a pressing need for the restoration of Christian philosophy.
THE RISE & FALL OF THE THOMISTIC RENEWAL — PART I
With astonishing suddenness Thomism ceased to be the governing and guiding philosophy in Catholic higher education. How to explain this?
A NEW RELIGION, A NEW PRIESTHOOD
Scientism is an attitude that fosters and promotes a seriously exaggerated — and hence distorted — estimation of the nature and the scope of science.
WHAT IS THOMISM & WHY DOES IT MATTER?
It allows us to understand reality, to know the truth, and, moreover, to see that the truth is of the utmost importance not only for the life of the Church but for the world.
VATICAN I'S ASSIST TO INTERRELIGIOUS DIALOGUE
Glenn B. Siniscalchi
The principles of fallibilist foundationalism are intrinsic to the nature of God and every human person, all of whom have been made in His image.
ACTION, CONTEMPLATION, MARTYDOM
James G. Hanink
If one who contemplates shares in God's life, contemplation overflows in the free gift of self. Thus, indeed, it shows that it is of God.
ANCHORLESS ON THE SEA OF CULTURE
Heather M. Erb
The same God who instructs the heart also makes full use of intellectual concepts, syllogisms, and insights, including those found in philosophy and theology.
Brian Thomas Becket Mullady
The grace of marriage allows the parties to become one flesh and calls forth from them the same love Christ has for His Church.
E. Christian Brugger
The reunification of body and soul at the resurrection of the dead will make possible a human perfection impossible without it.
THE KEY TO CHURCH RENEWAL
Being unsatisfied with mere "attendance at liturgy," the spiritually awakened seminarian will personally seek the Lord in the liturgy.
What characterizes Thomist thought? It is philosophy intrinsically consonant with common sense. For St. Thomas the real is just that, real.
MICHAEL NOVAK'S TRIBUTE TO BERNARD LONERGAN
For theologians who long ago jettisoned the Thomistic philosophy of being, Lonergan offers a new grounding for theology.
SHOULD WE ASK GOD FOR "TEMPORAL THINGS"?

IS NEO-THOMISM OBSOLETE?
Thomas W. Case
According to Kant, we do not look upon the world as it is, but upon an appearance of the world projected by the structures of the human mind.
ON THE VIRTUE OF HUMILITY
The Christian doctrine of humility strikes the secular mind as paradoxical in its insistence that the better a person is the more humble a person should be.
David J. Schlafer
The natural law tradition, viable for Thomas, does not strike most contemporary ethical theorists as an acceptable framework for understanding moral judgments.
