The absurdly good Edward Feser is absurdly good yet again, this time about the perils of the Nouvelle Theologie. I ought long ago to have written a proper post about Feser. Suffice to say that he is the most vigorous Thomist of the Strict Observance to get the printing presses going for some time. I strongly recommend The Last Superstition in which he hilariously pummels the ‘New Atheism’ and relentlessly mocks secular Liberalism before exposing the whole of modern philosophy as a disingenuous and incoherent strategy for avoiding Catholicism at the expense of Western Civilization. The sober and polite sibling of The Last Superstition is his book simply entitled Aquinas which is the best short introduction to St Thomas’s philosophy I have read for a very long time.
