How can one understand philosophically what nature is, and what human nature is specifically? How should one understand the theological notion of grace and how do grace and nature relate to another? Thomas Aquinas offers clear analysis of both these questions and this seminar will seek to examine his answers. Perhaps unsurprisingly, St Thomas’ notions of human nature, human longing for happiness and truth, and the promise of grace and its role in our lives is of great relevance in our contemporary epoch.
Join us in Lisbon for this conference on nature and grace according to St Thomas Aquinas, given by the Rector Magnificus Fr Thomas Joseph White, OP, and the Director of the Angelicum Thomistic Institute Fr Simon Francis Gaine, OP.
Coffee breaks and a snack lunch will be available for registered participants.
