    Title: A Manual of Neo-Scholastic Philosophy
    By (author): Charles R. Baschab
    ISBN10-13: 3868382119 : 9783868382112
    This book aims to publish a complete and systematic exposition of Scholastic philosophy based upon the sound principles of Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas and bring it into contact with the facts of modern science. The considerations which have guided the author in its composition are chiefly two: he wished both to modernize and popularize the Philosophia Perennis. The book covers the topics: philosophy of nature, psychology, ontology and metaphysics and natural theology.
    About The Author:
    Charles Reinhard Baschab (1874 – 1948) was born in Germany and was a professor of philosophy at several universities in the USA. He is also the author of the Manual of Catholic Religion.

    Title: ABC of Scholastic Philosophy
    Series: (Editiones scholasticae: 21)
    By (author): Anthony Charles Cotter
    ISBN10-13: 3868385215 : 9783868385212
    It is not a summary of philosophical problems, which the beginner cannot digest and which may engender in him a spirit of scepticism. For a like reason Cotter does not give an outline of the history of philosophy with the same problems arranged by periods. Instead, he confined himself to a few important data on the principal philosophers of past ages, and the author tried to sketch the intellectual equipment with which the student is supposed to begin philosophy.

    Title: Analytically Oriented Thomism
    Edited by: Miroslaw Szatkowski
    ISBN10-13: 3868385606 : 9783868385601
    As the title suggests, this collection of twelve essays -- by an international team of researchers – is the result of intersecting two areas of philosophical investigation which are often thought to be widely apart: Analytic Philosophy and the doctrine of St. Thomas Aquinas. The authors breathe new life into old ideas by examining Thomasic theses and arguments by applying the tools and techniques of Analytic Philosophy. The volume begins with an introductory essay: "What Is Analytically Oriented Thomism?" The other essays divide into four broad categories: (1) The Thomistic Doctrine of God (essays 2-4); (2) Thomistic Metaphysics: Logical Reconstruction (essay 5); (3) Thomistic Metaphysics: Ontology and Epistemology (essays 6-9); (4) Philosophical Theology (essays 10-11). This book will be helpful to anyone interested in understanding and evaluating St Thomas's ideas.

    Title: Aquinas on One & Many
    By (author): David Svoboda
    ISBN10-13: 3868385630 : 9783868385632
    The quest for unity and multiplicity is one of the most important concerns in the history of human thought. Since the origins of the history of philosophy up to the present, we can observe more or less unceasing interest in the issue. The same holds of the writings of Thomas Aquinas, to whose conception this work is devoted. Since the problem of unity and multitude is closely linked to many other key metaphysical issues, such as the doctrine of transcendental concepts, the mode of composition of being qua being, as well as substantial and accidental being, or the doctrine of whole and part, we believe that its proper interpretation not only can clarify some partial metaphysical problem, but will also contribute to understanding the metaphysical thought of the Angelic Doctor as a whole.

    Title: Aristotle’s Revenge
    Sub-title: The Metaphysical Foundations of Physical and Biological Science
    By (author): Edward Feser
    ISBN10-13: 3868382003 : 9783868382006
    Actuality and potentiality, substantial form and prime matter, efficient causality and teleology are among the fundamental concepts of Aristotelian philosophy of nature. Aristotle’s Revenge argues that these concepts are not only compatible with modern science, but are implicitly presupposed by modern science. Among the many topics covered are the metaphysical presuppositions of scientific method; the status of scientific realism; the metaphysics of space and time; the metaphysics of quantum mechanics; reductionism in chemistry and biology; the metaphysics of evolution; and neuroscientific reductionism. The book interacts heavily with the literature on these issues in contemporary analytic metaphysics and philosophy of science, so as to bring contemporary philosophy and science into dialogue with the Aristotelian tradition.
    About The Author:
    Edward Feser is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Pasadena City College in Pasadena, California, USA. His many books include Scholastic Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction, Aquinas, and the edited volume Aristotle on Method and Metaphysics.

    Title: Art & Beauty
    By (author): Maurice De Wulf
    ISBN10-13: 386838572X : 9783868385724
    The author attempt to establish a philosophy of art which is of a character both intellectual and objective. At first sight it may appear that, because of this twofold tendency, the theory is at variance with contemporary ideas. On closer examination, however, the reader will see that the tendency is in the opposite direction, a closer approach to present-day thought rather than a departure from it. To admit that there exists a world other than that of our subjective states is to subscribe to an interpretation more in keeping with the real, and thus also with artistic reality. The intellectual and objective philosophy to which the book appeals in order to interpret the beauty of art will not be an intrusion, if it guards against all exclusiveness and does not itself comprise that which gives it its value.
    About The Author:

    Title: Cognitive Psychology in Early Jesuit Scholasticism
    Edited by: Daniel Heider
    ISBN10-13: 3868385614 : 9783868385618
    Jesuit scholastic philosophy exemplified by the figure of Francisco Suárez (1548–1617) is at present a topic intensively studied worldwide. However, especially in the English speaking academic world, the immediate historical milieu of Suárez's philosophy and theology, constituted especially by the philosophical and theological production of his Jesuit contemporaries, is much less taken into account. In the field of philosophical cognitive psychology, extant especially in the commentaries on Aristotle's "On the Soul", the present publication aims to partially ameliorate this status quo. All the chapters in this book to some extent give evidence of the theological motivation and theological horizon of the Jesuit cognitive psychology of the last decades of the 16th century and the first decades of the 17th century.
    About The Author:
    Daniel Heider is Associate Professor at the Faculty of Theology, University of South Bohemia. He is also employed as researcher at the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences (Prague). In his research he focuses on early modern scholastic philosophy, especially on the philosophy of Jesuits headed by Francisco Suárez. His monographic publications, among others, include Universals in Second Scholasticism. A Comparative Study with Focus on the Theories of Francisco Suárez S.J. (1548–1617), Joăo Poinsot O. P. (1589–1644) and Bartolomeo Mastri da Meldola O.F.M. Conv. (1602–1673)/Bonaventura Belluto O.F.M. Conv. (1600–1676) (Benjamin Publisher, 2014). At present he is writing a book on Suárez's cognitive psychology.

    Title: Cosmology
    Sub-title: Translated with Notes by Francisco J Romero Carrasquillo
    By (author): Edouard Hugon
    ISBN10-13: 3868385312 : 9783868385311
    Thomists have traditionally presented philosophy and theology in St. Thomas Aquinas' own native scholastic methodology. This methodology allowed philosophical and theological disciplines to advance objectively and in a scientific manner for centuries -- understanding ‘science' in the Aristotelian sense. Hugon's multi-volume work uses this methodology, offering formal arguments with clearly identifiable premises and conclusions and formal objections with clearly identifiable distinctions, etc., covering practically all the parts of speculative philosophy. The manual is a true work of synthesis of seven centuries of Thomistic tradition. This translation thus puts into print and at the reach of English speakers an introduction to Thomistic philosophy that follows the scholastic scientific methodology faithfully, thus providing them with a solid means of learning the all-but-forgotten art of scholastic disputation. This Cosmology volume covers the first part of natural philosophy, considering the physical world from the point of view of its efficient, material, formal, and final causes.

    Title: Dictionary of Scholastic Philosophy
    By (author): Bernard Wuellner
    ISBN10-13: 3868385010 : 9783868385014
    The scholastic philosopher is interested in definition for a different reason than the lexicographer and linguist. The philosopher is trying to learn things. Fe defines, after investigating reality, in an attempt to describe reality clearly and to sum up some aspect of his understanding of reality. Hence, we find our scholastic philosophers adopting as a main feature of their method this insistence on defining, on precise and detailed explanation of their definitions, and on proving that their definitions da correctly express what a nature or activity is. A dictionary of the language of scholastic philosophy fitted to the needs of beginners and of undergraduate students of the subject is not available in English.
    About The Author:
