Abstract:

Truth and certitude are two different requirements of knowledge in strict sense. Such duality gives rise to the problem of justification: how to validate our assessment of what is true and what is not. Several texts of Thomas Aquinas give valuable clues for an answer. These indications clarify the relationship between truth and certainty in the light of the modal dimension of knowledge, and its dependence on the metaphysical structure of being

Key words:

Knowledge, Certainty, Modalities, Theory of Justification
