2014 West Coast Meeting of the Society for Aristotelian-Thomistic Studies


Philosophy as Handmaiden to Sacred Theology

The Society for Aristotelian-Thomistic Studies is an international organization that continues and expands the work of the former Society for Aristotelian Studies, founded in 1974 for the purpose of promoting “Friendship in the pursuit of wisdom.” Its foundation is the work of Aristotle, along with those who preceded and prepared him, and those faithful disciples who followed him throughout the centuries. Principal among the former were the great Pre-Socratic thinkers and Plato, and among the latter, Aristotle's greatest and most faithful disciple, St. Thomas Aquinas.
