Dr. Fulvio Di Blasi, Director of the Thomas International Center

343 E Six Forks Road, Suite 130, Raleigh, NC 27609

In preparation for making our first video courses available online in January, Fulvio Di Blasi will lead a series of seven lectures for our supporters spanning central philosophical topics. The seventh lecture is entitled, “Aristotle and Aquinas on the Existence of the Spiritual Soul.”

Unlike Plato, Aristotle shares with Aquinas the vision that the human soul and the body constitute a substantial unity. This class focuses on the proof for the spirituality of the soul given by Aristotle and defended by Aquinas. Part of the discussion will address the differences between concepts like (rational) “soul,” “intellect,” “human being,” and “person.”

DR. FULVIO DI BLASI IS AN INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED SCHOLAR IN THE FIELD OF MORAL PHILOSOPHY, NATURAL LAW THEORY, AND THOMISTIC PHILOSOPHY. HE IS FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF THE THOMAS INTERNATIONAL PROJECT, PRESIDENT OF THE THOMAS INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION IN ITALY, AND DIRECTOR OF THE THOMAS INTERNATIONAL CENTER IN RALEIGH, NC.
