Dr. Gaston LeNotre is an independent scholar who earned his PhD in Philosophy from the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. In his paper "Aquinas on the Different Problems of Individuation," Dr. LeNotre addresses issues concerning the principle of individuation in St. Thomas. He provides a thorough overview of St. Thomas' writings on how material individuals are individuated and provides a critique of Joseph Owens' interpretation of Aquinas that esse is the ultimate principle of individuation in Aquinas.
This talk was given at the Center for Thomistic Studies on March 9, 2018.
