Book Launch – Theistic Evolution: A Contemporary Aristotelian-Thomistic Perspective
December 14 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join Fr. Mariusz for the launch of his newest book:
Theistic Evolution: A Contemporary Aristotelian-Thomistic Perspective by Fr. Mariusz Tabaczek
In this book, Mariusz Tabaczek develops a contemporary, re-imagined proposal of an Aristotelian-
Thomistic perspective on theistic evolution. Deeply rooted in classical philosophy and theology, the
volume combines careful textual analysis of ancient, medieval, and contemporary literature with
innovative, original, and constructive argumentation and modelling. Tabaczek offers a wide-ranging set
of arguments on behalf of those who advocate for the relevance of classical philosophical and
theological thought in the context of contemporary science and the dialogue between science and
religion. Avoiding simplistic answers to complex questions concerning the origin of species, including the
human species, his book inspires critical thinking and a systematic approach to all major philosophical
presuppositions and both philosophical and theological repercussions of the theory of evolution.
Without contradicting or abandoning the letter of the tradition, Tabaczek echoes the spirit of Aristotle’s
and Aquinas’s philosophy and theology, moving them forward to embrace the evolutionary aspect of
the contemporary view of reality.
