By Edward Feser
Scholastic Metaphysics: a modern advent provides an summary of Scholastic methods to causation, substance, essence, modality, identification, endurance, teleology, and different matters in primary metaphysics. The ebook interacts seriously with the literature on those matters in modern analytic metaphysics, in order to facilitate the analytic reader’s knowing of Scholastic principles and the Scholastic reader’s figuring out of latest analytic philosophy. The Aristotelian concept of reality and potentiality offers the organizing subject, and the the most important dependence of Scholastic metaphysics in this idea is proven. The publication is written from a Thomistic standpoint, yet Scotist and Suarezian positions are handled besides the place they diverge from the Thomistic position.
