Agere Sequitur Esse – Action follows Being

Aquinas and other Scholastic philosophers frequently make use of the principle ‘agere sequitur esse’ (Latin for “action follows being” ), which means “action follows being.” The underlying concept is that what a thing does must necessarily reflect what it is in some way. Because their structures are different, the functions of the eyes and ears… Read More ›

THE EVIDENCE OF REALITY

We do not wish to dissuade you from continuing to read this; yet, in the spirit of complete honesty, we should state that there is, in a sense, just one good reason to believe in God: it is true.There are numerous such evidences, but they all contribute to our understanding of the reality of the… Read More ›

The Aristotelian Argument for the Existence of God
