A Brief Biography of Thomas Aquinas

This is the first lecture from the Modern Scholar course Philosophy of Thomas Aquinas taught by Professor Peter Kreeft.

In this introductory lecture to the Philosophy of Thomas Aquinas, Prof. Peter Kreeft provides a brief biography of a theological titan. Kreeft views Aquinas' prolific body of work as an important bridge between Greek philosophy and the early western philosophers such as Descartes. Seeing no division between Faith and Reason, Kreeft describes Aquinas as a quintessential truthseeker who was willing to take from secular and religious sources alike in the formation of an inclusive philosophy that is still vibrant and alive to this day.
