About the Series: Considerations of Jacques Maritain, John Deely and Thomistic Approaches to the Questions of These Times
Two models are used to appreciate now-forgotten paths stretching from Baroque scholastics to the present day. These models are the triadic structure of judgment and the category-based nested form. Two recent intellects stand out. One is Jacques Maritain. Born in France, he comes to North America around the time of the second world war. He is keenly interested in how to recover a scholastic approach within this world of modern science. Another is John Deely, whose recent death marks the end of a long career as both a Thomist and a semiotician. Deely confronts the philosophers of the day in a very entertaining manner. This series contains comments on articles from journals such as the American Catholic Philosophical Association, Faith and Philosophy, as well as books, including Daniel Novotny's excellent works on the Baroque scholastics. This series is not a course. It is a place to sample ideas. I encourage readers to consider both the original and the comments. They may be read in tandem or in sequence.
