Group Description

The aquinas list is intended to support thoughtful, respectful
conversation about the works and ideas of St. Thomas Aquinas and,
especially, slow readings of his works. For a brief discussion of
what I mean by "slow reading," please see my essay at
http://www.freelance-academy.org/slowread.htm. (Let me add that
St. Thomas's many commentaries on the works of Aristotle are
perhaps the best available examples of slow reading.)

This is one of a group of lists hosted by The Free Lance Academy,
whose main purpose is to create opportunities for serious,
committed intellectual inquiry outside the university, primarily
by means of online media such as internet mailing lists. For the
names of other lists in this group, search on the relevant
keywords listed below.

In the belief that the most effective way to learn something is
to teach it, another of the principal aims of The Free Lance
Academy is to provide opportunities for teaching, especially for
people who might not otherwise have such an opportunity. If you
would like to become a discussion leader of this list or any
other list hosted by The Free Lance Academy, please contact Lance
Fletcher, the President of The Free Lance Academy, at:
lance@interactive.net.

Keywords: The Free Lance Academy, freelance, freelance-academy,
philosophy, slow reading, aquinas, theology
