Conference on metaphysics of Aquinas in Rome

logoupra.gifThis is just in from Prof. Jésus Villagrasa L.C. of the Ateneo Pontificio Regina Apostolorum in Rome. They’re co-hosting a one-day conference on March 20, 2007 entitled “Creazione e actus essendi. Originalità e interpretazioni della metafisica di Tommaso d’Aquino”. Here is the program. If I could make it, I would be particularly looking forward to the papers on the “Patristic sources of the metaphysics of Aquinas” and “The ontological difference in 20th century Thomism”!

In addition the “Progetto Culturale Cornelio Fabro”, in charge of the edition of the collected works of the Italian Thomist Cornelio Fabro (see our Newsletter of March 2005), will present the edition of Fabro’s “Breve introduzione al tomismo”.
