Upcoming Philosophy Course

Philosophy as a Guide to Sane Thinking

by Mr John Young

What is philosophy? Why is it important? Do we know reality? The difference between sense knowledge and intellectual knowledge. Man: soul and body. Free will. God’s existence. His nature. His causality. The moral life.

On all these topics the secular views current today will be assessed in the light of the philosophy of St Thomas Aquinas, who is seen by the Catholic Church as a sure guide in philosophy.
