The Central Problems of Metaphysics
October 5, 2021 @ 8:15 am - 9:15 am
An event every week that begins at 8:15 am on Tuesday, repeating until October 12, 2021
If you know just enough Aristotle or Aquinas to know you would benefit from a more careful study of the basic principles of Aristotelian or Thomistic metaphysics, please join us for this seminar. Many of Witherspoon seminars tackle big life questions—this seminar, however, will be a close and detailed study of a classic Thomistic manual by Henri Grenier. At one point, his textbook, Cursus Philosophiae, was widely used, and while manuals such as his fell out of favor, they still merit study. No previous background in philosophy is required, and the text is (mostly) user-friendly, and helpful if you’d like to understand the basics of metaphysics, the discipline all others depend upon. The topics: being, truth, cause, and God.
