The universe is not eternal - we can now roughly date it. There are no souls separate from existence. And no one should take religious views blindly. Philosophy, evolutionary philosophy anyway, finds justification for laws and morality that are useful for everyone, not just an intellectual elite. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274 CE) was an Italian Dominican priest of the Catholic Church, and an immensely influential philosopher and theologian in the tradition of scholasticism The Prudence of Love: How Possessing the Virtue of Love Benefits the Lover. John's opponents included Marsilius of Padua and William of Ockham. Pope John rejected the Franciscan doctrine that those who practice the highest form of religious poverty, like Christ and the Apostles, will own nothing whatever, either as individuals or as a body Logic and Language in the Middle Ages: A Volume in Honour of Sten Ebbesen (Investigating Medieval Philosophy). This also forms the basis of the analysis of human conduct in Thomistic Ethics. 7. On the higher level of distinctively human experience, Aquinas found other activities and powers. a. The general capacity to understand (intellectus) covers simple apprehension, judging, and reasoning Logic and Language in the Middle Ages: A Volume in Honour of Sten Ebbesen (Investigating Medieval Philosophy). A large part of the Bible, for instance, is made up of wisdom literature, which is chiefly practical philosophy with a religious foundation. On the basis of ethics, Aristotle developed his 'Politics'. He moved from explaining how individuals could have a good life to how a good society should be built Vico and Plato.

Its methods were at first those of Plotinus and later those of Aristotle. But it developed within faith as a means of throwing light on the truths and mysteries of faith. Thus, religion and philosophy fruitfully cooperated in the Middle Ages. Philosophy, as the handmaiden of theology, made possible a rational understanding of faith Eriugena. In the first, he argues that the priority of certain things in time requires an “agent who made them prior,” who is God. In the second, he introduces the concept of contingency and argues that things, considered in themselves, are susceptible of various forms or qualities. The fact that they actually possess certain forms and no others presupposes a “determinant” who decrees that they should receive these forms and no others, and this determinant is God. [25] The last argument, or argument a contingentia mundi, is more fully developed by later authors, particularly al-Juwayni (d. 1086) in his al-Risalah al-Nizamiyah, and is the argument which, as we have seen, [26] Ibn Sina fully exploited in his Metaphysics Paul of Venice: Logica Magna, Part 2, Fasc 6: De Veritate et Falsitate Propositionis et De Significato Propositionis (Classical and Medieval Logic Texts).
