Philosophy

“In the continual relation with Catholic doctrine, at the school of St. Thomas Aquinas and the contemporary Thomists, philosophy helps to discern, deepen and explain the immediate principles of common sense; to study the deeper reasons which answer essential questions about man and life; to think about modern problems in the light of sane, traditional doctrine in order to resolve them.”

                                        – Father Roger Calmel, O.P. ibid.

Philosophy is the handmaiden of theology.  While philosophical concepts are introduced in religion, literature, and history classes throughout the four years, a separate History of Philosophy course is given during the senior year.  The aim of the course is to provide an introduction to the great philosophical conversation of the ages in a more formalized setting than through brief literary or historical encounters.
