Aristotelian-Thomistic Philosophy of Nature

"The undeniable basis for the metaphysics of Aristotle and St. Thomas is their prior study of the natural world of changeable being—of “physics” in their sense of the term. If modern science had shown that Aristotle’s studies of the natural world were false in all relevant ways, then it would also have shown that the metaphysics of St. Thomas was false as well. Conversely, if St. Thomas’ metaphysics richard-mille-replica.accentlingerie.com richard mille replica is a true science of being qua being, then in some essential respects his underlying physics—suitably updated and purified of empirical errors—is a true description of the natural world.

"Fortunately, in this very moment in history some empiriological scientists have a sufficiently “scientific cast of mind” to begin to see and grapple with the limits of reductionism in science, and thus return “from below,” as it were, towards a classical understanding of nature. Thus in biology we find a growing rebellion against reductionism and a return to holism in the writings of first-class scientists such as Franklin Harold in The Way of the Cell.

"Even in physics there is a movement toward holism and hierarchical ordering in nature, exemplified by the Nobel laureate Robert Laughlin’s astounding book A Different Universe: Reinventing Physics from the Bottom Down. Wherever we see scientists grappling with the existence of “emergent properties” in nature, we see the bottom-up rediscovery of the formal and structural principles long known to classical philosophy and still needed for a complete grasp of material reality." -- Christoph Cardinal Sch?nborn
