St. Thomas Aquinas andContemporary Philosophy:
On the highesttheological and philosophical planes, the Friarsare on the forefront of an effort to apply theintellectual tradition of St. Thomas Aquinas —known as Thomism—to problems incontemporary philosophy, in particular the searchfor Truth. Last month, the Thomistic Institute of the Pontifical Faculty of the ImmaculateConception (PFIC) at the Dominican House of Studies (DHS) in Washington, D.C. and theCatholic and Dominican Institute of Mount St.Mary College, a 4-year liberal arts college guided by the Catholic and Dominican traditions since itsfoundation by the Sisters of Saint Dominic in1960 in Newburgh, NY, co-sponsored aworkshop designed to formally inaugurate the project.Laying a foundation for ongoing dialogue, theconference gathered leading Catholic theologiansand philosophers for what is hoped will be thefirst of many dialogues
on developing ways tocounteract today’s dominant schools of philosophy that reject faith perspectives outof hand.
Representing the Province were Fr.Thomas Joseph White, O.P., Acting Director of the Thomistic Institute and Fr. James Brent, O.P.,whoteaches philosophy at Catholic University of America. They were joined as speakers by Fr.Charles Morerod, O.P., Rector of the Angelicum
