Seminar: Thomistic Psychology – Action Theory

Beginning in the Fall of 2019, the Continuum Philosophical Insight Lyceum began a project of “Retrieving Thomistic Psychology” with an eight-week seminar that laid the foundations of an understanding that avoids the pitfalls of modern psychology.  Now, in the Winter of 2020, a following “Thomistic Psychology – Action Theory” seminar will investigate the various operations Thomas Aquinas details as part of the process of human action in the Summa theologiae, prima secundae pars, qq.6-18.  That is, here we will focus upon what makes our acts specifically human.

One should be familiar with a general Thomistic psychology (as given in the previous seminar, or from other education) before beginning the study of action theory.  Here, we will look closely at the nature of voluntary action, the dynamism between the intellect and the will, and the specific procession of acts whereby we move from thinking to doing.
