A Course on Evolution and Thomism

Speculations on Thomism and Evolution

This essay re-articulates the concepts in this defense, relying of the category-based nested form. In the end, living forms are rendered as mysteries compatible with the Word.
Comments on Michal Chaberek’s Essay (2019) "Classical Metaphysics and Theistic Evolution"
