    Logos: A Journal of Catholic Thought and Culture Thomistic Ethics in America John Haldane Logos: A Journal of Catholic Thought and Culture University of St. Thomas Volume 3, Number 4, Fall 2000 pp. 150-168 10.1353/log.2000.0004 Article View Citation Related Content Additional Information Purchase/rental options available: Rent from DeepDyve In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Logos: A Journal of Catholic Thought and Culture 3.4 (2000) 150-168 [Access article in PDF] Thomistic Ethics in America John Haldane The greatest institutional contributions to Catholic philosophy in the modern English-speaking world have been made in the United States in the twentieth century. European influences have been strong, particularly through the work of Gilson, Maritain, Pieper, and Simon, but they served principally to stimulate generations of Americans to draw upon and reformulate Catholic philosophical thought, especially but not exclusively Thomism. University presses, such as those of Catholic University of America, Fordham, Georgetown, Loyola, and Marquette, have been important in the dissemination of these ideas; however the primary critical fora of Catholic thought have been journals. In the field of philosophy, narrowly construed, a familiar trio of periodicals spans three quarters of the twentieth century: the Modern Schoolman founded in 1925, New Scholasticism established in 1927 and continued from 1990 as the American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, and the Thomist founded in 1939. (To which might be added, as favoring Catholic thought, two general philosophy journals: the Review of Metaphysics established in 1947 and the International Philosophical Quarterly founded in 1961.) [End Page 150] Since these periodicals were established, the range of philosophical problems and approaches has widened. There is a need to address this while also maintaining links between philosophy and other branches of humane reflection and scholarship. This latter is, I think, of particular importance in consequence of the trend of academic philosophy to have become increasingly inaccessible to nonprofessionals. That tendency was near to inevitable given the scientific conception of knowledge adopted by the large American research universities, which is now dominant in all but a few institutions. Over the same period, however, the number of issues on which nonphilosophers and nonacademics in general seek informed reflection and guidance has grown considerably. This is particularly true of public policy questions. Indeed, the need of places where there can be discussion of issues of the first importance contributed to by philosophers, theologians, cultural historians, literary critics and others is greater than ever before. 1. Aquinas, Contemporary Ethics, and Natural Law Apart from the spheres of metaphysics and natural theology, Aquinas's greatest influence, and certainly the field in which his ideas have had an impact beyond the Catholic world, is that of ethics and politics. Thomas's own principal writings in this area are to be found in the First Part of the Second Part (the Prima Secundae) of the Summa Theologiae, in his Commentary on Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, and in his Treatise on Kingship. These texts, together with commentaries upon them, served as the main model of Catholic ethics throughout the heyday of the revival of Thomism inaugurated in 1879 by Leo XIII's Aeterni Patris, or to use Leo's own less often quoted title: "The Restoration in Catholic schools of Christian Philosophy according to the mind of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Angelic Doctor." With the reception of the Second Vatican Council and in conformity with the character of the 1960s, however, Catholic moral [End Page 151] theology underwent a process of critical reconstruction and this led many to abandon the Thomistic natural-law tradition in favor of more experientially and existentially oriented approaches. Within philosophy, however, the situation was rather different. There are several reasons for this. First, philosophers are generally concerned with theoretical coherence and argumentative rigour, and Thomas's style of ethics exhibits both, whereas at least some of the new modes appeared to exhibit neither. Second, Aquinas grounds his moral philosophy in metaphysics in the form of the philosophy of nature, and this provides for a robust notion of objectivity of ethical judgment in contrast to the seeming subjectivity of existentialist and sentimentalist approaches. Third, in the secular English-language philosophy of the 1960s there had been a revival of interest in Aristotelian ethics and more broadly in objectivist naturalism of a sort quite close to Aquinas's own. Some of those responsible for the revival, such as Elizabeth Anscombe and Peter Geach, were themselves Catholics; others, such as Philippa Foot and Geoffrey... collapse You are not currently authenticated.

  • The Oxford Handbook of the Reception of Aquinas

    Aquinas's commentaries on St. Paul are well known and have received significant attention in the past few years. It is widely known, too, that Aquinas quotes Paul often in the Summa theologiae. This aspect of the Summa, however, has not been studied in detail. This book seeks to fill that lacuna in scholarship.

  • Aquinas on Prudence, Final End and Political Wisdom

    If the human being has a natural desire to see God, Christianity promises a philosophically defensible goal: to build up friendship with God in this life, to see God face to face in the next. While this is a remarkable religious claim, Aquinas also believes it is deeply interconnected with our day to day life and experience. In other words, our ability to identify true freedom and to live happily in friendship and justice with others without compromising our integrity as reasonable human beings is connected to our openness to God and our willingness to avoid "settling" in life for too little. In this online lecture, Father White will help us look at prudence (ethical reasoning) from this particular perspective: as a virtue that is connected with the final end of the human person, and an authentic sense of human freedom. About our guest speaker Rev. Thomas Joseph White, O.P. Director of Thomistic Institute at the Angelicum and Professor Fr. White is the Director of the Thomistic Institute at the Angelicum. He did his doctoral studies at Oxford University, and has research interests in metaphysics, Christology, Trinitarian theology, and the theology of grace. His books include The Incarnate Lord, A Thomistic Study in Christology (2015) and The Light of Christ: An Introduction to Catholicism (2017). He is co-editor of the academic journal Nova et Vetera and in 2011 was appointed an ordinary member of the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas. In 2019 Fr. White was named a McDonald Agape Foundation Distinguished Scholar. About this year's theme for our programs: Prudence: a Word, a Virtue, a Theme This year, following the requests of our students, the Austin Institute has developed its academic programming around a common theme that will unify the activities of the semester. The focus of our fall programming is on the most underestimated and yet most needed virtue of prudence. Prudence will also guide our practical choices for our programs. All in-person and/or online programming conform to current health guidelines. We want to keep everyone safe while providing program opportunities during this pandemic.

  • The Nature of Human Persons: Metaphysics and Bioethics

    Is there a shared nature common to all human beings? What essential qualities might define this nature? These questions are among the most widely discussed topics in the history of philosophy and remain subjects of perennial interest and controversy. The Nature of Human Persons offers a metaphysical investigation of the composition of the human essence. For a human being to exist, does it require an immaterial mind, a physical body, a functioning brain, a soul? Jason Eberl also considers the criterion of identity for a developing human being—that is, what is required for a human being to continue existing as a person despite undergoing physical and psychological changes over time? Eberl's investigation presents and defends a theoretical perspective from the thirteenth-century philosopher and theologian Thomas Aquinas. Advancing beyond descriptive historical analysis, this book places Aquinas’s account of human nature into direct comparison with several prominent contemporary theories: substance dualism, emergentism, animalism, constitutionalism, four-dimensionalism, and embodied mind theory. These theories inform various conclusions regarding when human beings first come into existence—at conception, during gestation, or after birth—and how we ought to define death for human beings. Finally, each of these viewpoints offers a distinctive rationale as to whether, and if so how, human beings may survive death. Ultimately, Eberl argues that the Thomistic account of human nature addresses the matters of human nature and survival in a much more holistic and desirable way than the other theories and offers a cohesive portrait of one’s continued existence from conception through life to death and beyond.

  • The Light That Binds

    If there is any one author in the history of moral thought who has come to be associated with the idea of natural law, it is Saint Thomas Aquinas. Many things have been written about Aquinas’s natural law teaching, and from many different perspectives. The aim of this book is to help see it from his own perspective. That is why the focus is metaphysical. Aquinas’s whole moral doctrine is laden with metaphysics, and his natural law teaching especially so, because it is all about first principles. The book centers on how Aquinas thinks the first principles of practical reason, which for him are what make up natural law, function as laws. It is a controversial question, and the book engages a variety of readers of Aquinas, including Francisco Suárez, Jacques Maritain, prominent analytical philosophers, Straussians, and the initiators of the New Natural Law theory. Among the issues addressed are the relation between natural law and natural inclination, how far natural law depends on knowledge of human nature, what its obligatory force consists in, and, above all, how it is related to what for Aquinas is the first principle of all being, the divine will.
