More About Saint Aquinas Thomas, Richard Berquist, Ralph M. McInerny, K. Hauspie, Erik Benrud & Nora Osganian

Thomas Aquinas Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274) lived at a critical juncture of western culture when the arrival of the Aristotelian corpus in Latin translation reopened the question of the relation between faith and reason, calling into question the modus vivendi that had obtained for centuries. This crisis flared up just as universities were being founded. Thomas, after early studies at Montecassino, moved on to the University of Naples in 1244, where he met members of the new Dominican Order. It was at Naples too that Thomas had his first extended contact with the new learning. When he joined the Dominican Order he went north to study with Albertus Magnus, author of a paraphrase of the Aristotelian corpus. Thomas completed his studies at the University of Paris, which had been formed out of the monastic schools on the Left Bank and the cathedral school at Notre Dame. In two stints as a regent master Thomas defended the mendicant orders and, of greater historical importance, countered both the Averroistic interpretations of Aristotle and the Franciscan tendency to reject Greek philosophy. The result was a new modus vivendi between faith and philosophy which survived until the rise of the new physics. The Catholic Church has over the centuries regularly and consistently reaffirmed the central importance of Thomas's work for understanding its teachings concerning the Christian revelation, and his close textual commentaries on Aristotle represent a cultural resource which is now receiving increased recognition.

He was formally canonized in 1323.

Thomas Aquinas was born in 1225 and died in 1274.

Logic  Mar 10, 2008
This commentary is outstanding as an exposition of logic's theory of scientific knowledge. Aristotle's Posterior Analytics belongs to the division of logic that is the material logic of the theory of arguments. Where as Aristotle's Topics exposits dialectial(probable) syllogisms and probable arguments which lead to scientific proofs but are not scientific proofs, in this Aristotelian work there is an exposition of the theory of scientific proofs, both demonstration and induction. These latter are the two means by which science is acquired. Aristotle's Posterior Analytics and Aquinas' commentary provide a unified theory of scientific knowledge by examing the material order of arguments, the necessity and evidence versus contingency of their premises which modern logic does not do. This exposes omissions in modern logic that need to be filled by Aristotelian and Scholastic logic in order to develop a unified science of logic. By means of this logical theory of scientific knowledge, Aristotle and Thomas have enabled all scientists from math, mathematical natural science, and philosophy, to theology to exposit their subjects scientifically without violating the subject of each species of knowledge. Thereby this work liberates scientists from the false restrictions of empiricism or rationalism by means of a general theory of scientific knowledge that applies to all species of knowledge which are rightly called sciences. By means of this work Aquinas can scientifically explain how both math, mathematical phyics, and sacred theology are all sciences without violating the specific integrity of any of them at all. Simply be a mathematician in math, a mathematical physicists in mathematical physics, a natural philosopher in natural philosophy, a metaphysician in metaphysics, a moral philosopher in moral philosophy, and a sacred theologian in sacred theology such that all these species of knowledge satisfy the definition of science as provided by Aristotle's Posterior Analytics. Science is formally defined as the intellectual virtue of necessary and evident knowledge. All scientists should be thankful for this great work providing a logically rigorous theory of scientific knowlege in general.
