A primer in Catholic philosophy
#1
Here are some resources for anyone wanting some Catholic perspective on philosophical issues.

http://iteadthomam.blogspot.com/ blog, very good for Thomistic resources (incl. works out of print, or very hard to come by), includes some Scholastic disputations.

http://radicalacademy.com/prcminicourseindex.htm mini-courses on the various disciplines within philosophy, i.e.: metaphysics, logic, epistemology, cosmology etc.

http://radicalacademy.com/philaquinasmdw0.htm "The Philosophical System of Thomas Aquinas"

http://www.lifeissues.net/writers/mcm/ph...outh1.html "An Introduction to Philosophy for Young People" (or anyone, for that matter)


http://www.aquinasonline.com/ Another good overview of key doctrines of Saint Thomas

http://maritain.nd.edu/jmc/aristotl.htm here's a collection of various works, mostly from late 19th to early 20th century. Mostly deals with things from a Thomistic basis.

...Let's add to this list shall we?

From Notre Shame, surprisingly. Just ignore the works of the modernist Maritain and scroll down to 'The Thomistic Revival' where there are links to many pre-Conciliar Thomistic works, including Desire, Cardinal Mercier's 'Elements of Logic'.

There is no such thing as "Catholic" philosophy.  Philosophy deals with truths we can attain through reason.  Therefore, philosophy is not any more Catholic than biology or physics.

Yes, but insofar as we can engage in philosophy, we can have a Catholic approach, or not. And since Catholic approach that can be taken means we can use the term ''Catholic philosophy''. Of course this means philosophy is never ''stand alone'' but we must always have recourse to the Catholic Faith through theology, to which philosophy is subordinate and helps serve.
