The Nature and Existence of God

  • October 25 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
Aquinas Institute (134 Nassau St)

The greatest commandment invites us to love God with “all our mind,” and on Holy Thursday night Christ adds to this that “this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”  How can we grow in our knowledge of God, and in particular, what role can human reason play in knowing God?  This seminar will explore how Catholic thought has reflected on the way philosophical reason can lead us to know God’s existence, nature, and goodness, as well as how philosophical wisdom relates to the wisdom found in theology and in a life of faith, prayer, and holiness.
