Anti-Aquinas

I’ve read a ton of Aquinas this weekend, and one effect of the incredibly monotonous format for me was that I started to feel pity for the “it seems” positions each article starts with — you know Aquinas is just setting them up for a fall. This led me to a thought: someone needs to take all the positions Aquinas rejects and advocate them as a consistent system of theology.

The biggest challenge is that you’d have to say God doesn’t exist, but surely you could work with that (turning it into a rejection of the analogia entis rather than the common-sense meaning of “God doesn’t exist,” perhaps).

    And even if one couldn’t turn Aquinas’ shadow into a consistent system, that might itself be interesting argument against Thomas.
