    Aquinas Alive – next 9 disks

    These are the next 9 disks of Aquinas Alive course (10 classes). This is the package primarily for those who already purchased the first three disks (but anyone can purchase them). These next five disks are the immediate continuation of the first three. Covers a multitude of topics in a fun, easy-to-understand manner: Act & Potency, Hylomorphism, The Four Causes, Essence & Existence, the Transcendentals, the Principle of Double Effect, and a unique, detailed discussion of the 42 “Principles of Reason” on which Scholastic Philosophy is based. We also now cover a the development of Greek philosophy from Thales onward, "Sophism" both Ancient and Modern (using words for manipulation and power rather than vehicles of Truth); the though of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. and finally, the a quick introduction to St. Thomas Aquinas Five Ways to Prove the Existing of God. As with the first three disks, these are at a simple high-school level, an introduction to the topics. It is meant to familialrize the average listener with the language and the structure of Thomistic philosophy.

A helpful introduction to Thomistic Philosophy, the system of philosophy most in line with REALITY, and recommended by the Popes throughout the centuries. This course puts you in touch with a vital compoenent of your Catholic heritage, very much neglected in our time. Learn why the eminent Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange said that the current maladies in the Church have been "not a crisis of faith, but of the very great malady of the intellect, which conducts itself on the tracks of liberal Protestantism and through relativism to absolute skepticism."
