Förnuftets chiaroscuro: Om möjlighet till kunskap om Gud enligt Thomas av Aquino
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This academic essay explores the possibilities to knowledge of God in the thought of Thomas Aquinas. The essay takes its departure from question 12 in the Summa Theologiae, specifically articles 12 and 13 that deal with natural knowledge of God and supernatural knowledge, respectively.
It also presents objections made by modern philosophers against these ways of knowledge along with a rebuttal of these objections.
Lastly, a conclusion is offered and ends with a reflection on how Aquinas' teaching on human knowledge of God in earthly existence compares with his teaching on the knowledge human beings will have in heaven and what consequences that has for our present knowledge.
