The Third Annual Thomas Aquinas Philosophy Workshop took
place at Mount Saint Mary College on June 13-16, 2013.
Thomas Aquinas: Free Will & Virtue
What is the nature of human freedom according to St. Thomas
Aquinas? Is his analysis defensible today? How does it allow us to
understand the ethical character of human actions and the virtues
and vices that constitute the moral life?
The first day of the conference was devoted especially to
graduate students, either in philosophy or adjacent disciplines.
The second and third days of the event combined presentations by
philosophers with times of discussion and debate. Mass and
Eucharistic Adoration, as well as opportunities for informal
recreation, were offered each day.
