    NATURAL THEOLOGY

    As Aristotle teaches, the highest and most noble natural activity of the human person is to know God's existence and nature through His creatures. To do this in a scientific manner is the business of the highest part of the science of metaphysics, namely, natural theology. Over the course of eight class meetings, we shall endeavor to unpack and meditate on St. Thomas Aquinas's principal teachings in the realm of natural theology. We shall do so by examining most of questions 2-26 of the Prima pars of the Summa theologiae.
