Resources

Readers of my blog may have noticed that I don’t really bother with citations in my blog posts, though I do include the occasional link to places where I am getting my information from. This is rather poor methodology on my part, I admit. Since it wasn’t my intention when I began writing this to publish it formally, I’ve mostly been treating it as a way of gathering my own thoughts on things. Those thoughts are the product of much bouncing around inside my head, after doing lots of reading about many different things – and, often, I don’t recall where exactly I found that reading.

However, I thought it would be a good idea to at least create a list of resources where people can go to learn some of the things that I write about. Here are a few good sources of information for the kind of content on this blog.

(It should go without saying that my recommendation of the following resources does not entail that I agree with everything written in them!)

Aristotelian / Scholastic Metaphysics and Natural Theology

For a dive into what is in some ways a very different way of looking at the world, which I am currently exploring, I recommend the following books.

Books by Edward Feser:

  • The Last Superstition
  • Aquinas
  • Five Proofs for the Existence of God
  • Scholastic Metaphysics
  • Aristotle’s Revenge
