We are happy to welcome Dr. Nathan Smith, who teaches at Houston Community College, to our Colloquium Series this semester. This episode features his paper on Descartes, in which he investigates Descartes' mathematical method and the implications of that method for Descartes' idea of what corporeal beings are.
This paper, "How Descartes' Method of Discovery Shapes His Concept of Corporeal Nature", was given at the Center for Thomistic Studies on December 6th, 2019.
The Center for Thomistic Studies, located at the University of St. Thomas in Houston, TX, is the only graduate program in the United States uniquely dedicated to the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas.
