Thomas Aquinas: Teacher of Humanity

Co-sponsored by the Center for Thomistic Studies and The John Paul II Forum

The First US conference of the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas
18 - 19 October 2013
University of St. Thomas (Houston)


Thomas Aquinas: Teacher of Humanity will explore the significance for the 21st century of Thomas Aquinas’ teaching on humanity. Is it still meaningful to talk about “humanity” or “inhumanity”? What challenges do evolution, eugenics and the trans-humanist movement present for a concept of “humanity”? Is the “human” a viable standard in a world with many cultures and traditions? Papers are solicited on these and related topics.


Please submit papers to: thomistic_center@stthom.edu
Deadline for receipt of papers: July 1, 2013
