Center professor Dr. Christopher Martin is the author of this week's colloquium paper. The subject is the difficult concept of the "self": how the self can be identified, what ensures its continuity, and to what degree it can be identified with the soul.
This paper, "The Self and the Soul: Aquinas, Ascombe and Authority", was given at the Center for Thomistic Studies on November 8th, 2019.
