Very glad that this podcast exists. The only reason I gave it four stars is that not every topic is one I’m deeply interested in (no fault of theirs), and sometimes the audio is... imperfect. Shouldn’t five stars mean a thing cannot be improved? Anyway, recommended!

Rank #17: The Mind's Ascent to God: Theology as a Science and as Wisdom | Fr. Dominic Legge, OP

Podcast cover
Read more
On July 10th- 14th the Thomistic Institute held our first annual "Student Leadership Conference" at the Dominican House of Studies
on the theme "Faith, Reason, & the Mind’s Ascent to God"

Aquinas offers a robust account of faith and reason, and the way that human beings can come to real knowledge of the divine. Understanding these truths is central not only to the Catholic faith, but to all knowledge of reality because God is the transcendent cause of all being, the source of intelligibility, and truth itself.

Fr. Dominic Legge, OP (Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception and the Thomistic Institute)
Prof. Ed Feser (Pasadena City College)
Fr. James Brent, OP (Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception)
and a keynote address by R.R. Reno (First Things)

Rank #20: Atonement & Forgiveness | Eleonore Stump

Podcast cover
Read more
This lecture was offered on Sept. 20th, 2018 at Tulane University. To find out more about upcoming TI events, check out: https://thomisticinstitute.org/events-1/

Lecture Description:
In Simon Wiesenthal’s book "The Sunflower: On the Possibility and Limits of Forgiveness," Wiesenthal tells the story of a dying German soldier who was guilty of horrendous evil against Jewish men, women, and children, but who desperately wanted forgiveness from and reconciliation with at least one Jew before his death. Wiesenthal, then a prisoner in Auschwitz, was brought to hear the German soldier’s story and his pleas for forgiveness. As Wiesenthal understands his own reaction to the German soldier, he did not grant the dying soldier the forgiveness the man longed for. In The Sunflower, Wiesenthal presents reflections on this story by numerous thinkers. Their responses are noteworthy for the highly divergent intuitions they express. In this lecture, Prof. Stump uses the account of love given by Thomas Aquinas to argue that those respondents who are convinced that forgiveness should be denied the dying German soldier are mistaken. Nonetheless, she also argues in support of the attitude that rejects reconciliation with the dying German soldier. Prof. Stump will show that, in some cases of grave evil, repentance and making amends are not sufficient for the removal of guilt, and that in some cases of grave evil, reconciliation may be morally impermissible, whatever the case as regards forgiveness.

Speaker Bio:
