Learn how to reason and understand Thomistic philosophy in this relatable course that simplifies the complex for your student. Learn how to think intelligently about God and the world He made — and how to exercise reason in its highest form. Get easy-to-understand philosophy — and complete your understanding with Part Two!
Every Christian should be grounded in an understanding of solid principles of Christian philosophy, and Dave Palmer believes the younger a person learns them, the better he or she will be equipped to live an authentically Christian life in the midst of our challenging culture. The Catholic Church’s understanding of philosophy is based on the teachings of St. Thomas Aquinas and his classic, The Summa Theologica. This class is presence of God in our everyday experiences.
