Christian humanism in the III millennium from the perspective of Thomas
Aquinas’s philosophy can be developed by finding the common area between
Thomism and other current philosophy trends, for example analytic philosophy.
The common area for both: Thomism and analytic philosophy is not a new idea.
According to John Haldaine (from St. Andrews University) now there is
analytical Thomism, which connects the analytic traditions with Aquinas` thought
and his followers. It tries to use the tools of analytic philosophy to investigate the
philosophical problems of Aquinas’s philosophy.
My paper presents an attempt to show what is common and what is different in both metaphysics: Mieczyslaw Albert Krapiec’s metaphysics and
Peter Frederic Strawson’s metaphysics.
