Why don't we ever talk about Edward Feser here?

What is everyone's problem?  He is awesome and an excellent apologist.  Why are you all so mean to him?

Who was mean to him? He's a good introduction into Aristotelian and Thomistic thought. He was my gateway into armchair theology. He's no perfect apologist or theologian, and certainly isn't an authority, but I think he's worth reading for those that want to get into Catholic theology or even just Aristotelian philosophy.

I link to his blog on the resources page off the Being Catholic section: https://www.fisheaters.com/resources.html  (he links to FishEaters, too, BTW. He has good taste, ha).

That's interesting.  I never really delved too much into his personal brand of Catholicism, but I always imagined him as more of a conciliar neo-con a la Ross Douthat.  It doesn't appear that he is a "traditionalist" but I could be wrong.  I mean, he also links to Jimmy Akin so his taste can't be THAT good.

His book The Last Superstition was a big part of what brought me back to The Church. I was already familiar with the "debunking" of the proofs of God's existence, but had never read the actual proofs in Aquinas, and had no idea that the atheist authors I had been reading didn't fully read the proofs either. It's also an excellent introduction to hylemorphism.

Feser has written some good stuff against the death penalty change in the Catechism. The best articulation of the problems with it that I've seen anywhere.

His book about it, By Man Shall His Blood Be Shed, is also very good.

I don’t believe I’ve heard of him until this thread, so that’s why I haven’t been talking about him.

Thank you for the recommendation!
