All of our Faith’s truths apply to the human soul. But do you know exactly what the soul is?
The timeless questions can only be answered properly if we have an understanding of another underlying question that they touch on: “What is the human soul?”
Following upon the previous volumes in the series, Philosophy of Man seeks to help the beginner in philosophy understand the maxim of the Greeks: “Know thyself.”
The study of the soul is of great use in our pursuit of wisdom because knowledge of the soul assists us in every other branch of knowledge—for it is by means of the soul that we know. Therefore, knowing more about the soul will help us better understand each of the things we know. Following the philosophical system of Saint Thomas, Philosophy of Man will guide the student in how to view his soul and to see the order that God has created. Every philosophical and theological error of modernity culminates in a misunderstanding of who the human person is, how he is made, and what he is made for.
In this third volume of The Foundations of Wisdom, understand how the Church explains that the human person is “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Deepen your understanding of our very selves, learning how God made us to come to know Him and see His mark in every aspect of creation.
