on the poplars that grew there we hung up our harps. . . Ps 136

Link to the Aquinas School of Philosophy

Dr Raphael Waters, sometime student of A.M. Woodbury PhD., S.T.D., founder (in 1943) of Sydney’s Aquinas Academy and its Regent until his retirement in the 1970’s, founded the Aquinas School of Philosophy in New York in 2005 with Dr Denis Bonnette PhD.  Dr Waters enjoyed a long career teaching the philosophy of St Thomas Aquinas on the American continent.  He died on August 26th 2010.  Dr Bonnette and his assistants continue this admirable work.

It is difficult to find an institution where one may gain a proper understanding of the metaphysical view of reality taught by St Thomas.  By this we mean, one where the mind of St Thomas is not compromised by deference to the demands of modern philosophy.  Sydney’s Centre for Catholic Studies (formerly the Centre for Thomistic Studies), successor of the Aquinas Academy, is one such institution—   New York’s Aquinas School of Philosophy—is another.   We commend to our readers the courses, both live and on DVD the School has available which may be accessed via the link.

Intending students may find the lessons in basic philosophical principles provided here on superflumina will whet their appetite for the more profound teaching available there.
