Es el Alma un Idea Religiosa?
Dr. David Torrijos-Castrillejo, Complutense University [Faculty of Philosophy]
El miércoles 31 de octubre de 2019 el Dr. David TORRIJOS, pbro., profesor de Filosofía en la Universidad Eclesiástica San Dámaso, pronunciará una conferencia titulada «¿Es el alma una idea religiosa?». Será a las 19.30 h en el seminario 25 de la Facultad de Filosofía (A) de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid.
Although in our culture the notion of ‘soul’ can give the impression of being a ‘religious’ idea, in Catholic teaching it has not been considered exclusively as such. It is true that the Church has made the idea of ‘soul’ her own and the notion of human being that Catholicism has cannot be explained without this concept. However, the notion as such has been accepted rather as a ‘scientific’ idea that allows a better exposition of the faith. St Thomas Aquinas makes an excellent exposition of the ‘soul’ as the first principle of life, using a rigorous delimitation of this concept as a scientific thesis that can also be used in the exposition of faith.
