“This all men speak of as God” (S.Th., I, 2, 3c). And the raison d’être of Philosophy of Religion

The point of arrival for each of the quia demonstrative ways is the fruit of solidly founded scientific reasoning. Each is made to coincide in re with “this all men speak of as God”. We think that there is a human and epistemological space, which is still empty and must be filled by an appropriate Philosophy of Religion. This philosophy must possess a proper and exclusive object, which would be, according to our hypothesis, “this all men speak of as God”: not “God” considered in his existence or nature, but rather in his mysterious “presence” and “action” in each conscience, in every conscience, and in every kind of conscience.

Note on the formation and transfer of the patrimony of Cornelio Fabro

In this communication we propose to clarify the notion of virtue from the Thomistic metaphysics of esse. That is why our reflection will start from the texts of Aquinas. Although a critical historical study of the sources and evolution of the concepts of virtue and virtus essendi in Saint Thomas would surely help us to have a broader perspective, we apologize for taking this path here since it would require a greater development than we can realize in this headquarters. We will then limit ourselves to the doctrinal development, which is the most fundamental, without prejudice to other studies completing the ideas outlined here. The metaphysical deepening in the concept of virtue is of special importance, not only for the development of this discipline, but also for the usefulness of theology and for illumination from the first philosophy of the second philosophies referred to man, his personality and his act.
