Leafing through my family's Jerusalem Bible I found a pamphlet from Lent of 1975 that left me bug-eyed. I was about to turn fourteen years of age, and was a dutiful if unenthused Catholic. Our family went to a Lenten service at church. The rest I'll tell you now.Read More
In 2012 Pasquale Porro published a book on Aquinas entitled Tommaso d'Aquino: un profilo storico-filosofico. So, the book is not "brand new" but it is fairly new. Porro teaches at the Università di Bari and at the Sorbonne. As many of our readers may know, his work in mediaeval philosophy is extensive.
The book on Aquinas does just what its title says. It takes the reader through Aquinas's works in chronological order, setting them in their historical context and drawing out what Porro takes to be their philosophical import.
In May 2013 the Centro Culturale di Milano sponsored a round-table discussion of Porro's book. The participants were Constantino Esposito (Università di Bari), who moderated, Onorato Grassi (Università Lumsa di Roma), Luca Bianchi (Università degli Studi di Piemonte Orientale), and, of course, Porro himself. You can watch the whole thing here.
Sr. Mary T. Clark, RSCJ (Oct. 23, 1913—Sept. 1, 2014) was the author of many books, longtime philosophy professor at Manhattanville College, the editor of An Aquinas Reader, and the Aquinas Medalist for the American Catholic Philosophical Association in 1988. Here is a memorial notice. Manhattanville College maintains the Mary T. Clark Chair of Christian Philosophy in her honor.
