Dr. Matt Kostelecky and three fellow academics tackle the Aristotelian-Thomistic view of the human person.

23 October 2019

SJC Associate Dean and Associate Professor Dr. Matt Kostelecky has recently co-authored a book on Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas. The Human Person introduces the Aristotelian-Thomistic view of the human person to a contemporary audience, and reviews the ways in which this view could provide a philosophically sound foundation for modern psychology.

The book presents the current state of psychology and offers critiques of the current philosophical foundations. In its presentation of the fundamental metaphysical commitments of the Aristotelian-Thomistic view, it places the human being within the broader understanding of the world.
