Michael Sullivan, Errores Philosophorum


A proper presentation of the Leonine revival?

The Ressourcement Movement in Catholic Theology (Part 1)

There is this comment:

Michael J. putting the smack down on decadent ossified scholasticism (Aristotelian-Thomism)!!! It's hard to believe that there remain even to this day pockets of such...well, I'll put down my cards... absurd thinkers.
A contributor to Vox Nova, and teacher of philosopher. As it is a comment, one does not expect a thorough explication of what he means by Aristotelian-Thomism, but it might help, as the lack of the art of logic on the part of many academics is a continuing problem. Neo-scholasticism was ossified, I would grant that. But does it embody the best of Aristotelian-Thomism? I think not.

Resolution of the Paradox of Self-Giving in the Mystery of the Trinity: The Analogy of Revelation
The Individual and the Person: A Prolegomena

Plus this:

Michael Joseph said...
Anxietas, Jimmy Akin and Karl Keating over at Catholic Answers strongly recommend Ludwig Ott's Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma, one of the last German neo-Scholastic figureheads. Of course, Akin and Keating likely do so out of ignorance given their proclivities to simplistic texts.

Examine Per Caritatem as well.
Part I: D.C. Schindler on Balthasar and a Non-Possessive Concept of Knowledge
Part II: D.C. Schindler on Balthasar and a Non-Possessive Concept of Knowledge

What's up with this?

Pickstock had earlier explained that the fact that the accidents of bread and wine remain indicates that they are beyond the accident/substance division and now manifest the more fundamental essence/existence composition of all creation. In other words, the Eucharist directs us back to the more basic, yet nonetheless miraculous ontological situation of all creation both receiving its being from God who is the act of being, and being sustained in being by God.
??? But do not the accidents receive their being from God as well?
