Content

This course is designed for those students coming to the Angelicum for the second or third cycle whose prior philosophical training was not in the Aristotelian-Thomistic tradition. Students will take part in the lectures (and follow the readings) for the first-cycle course Metaphysics 2. (See above for details.) Students will also be assigned additional reading, for which they will have an additional exam, which will address topics dealt with in Metaphysics 1.
