Description

This work argues for the restoration of Aristotelianism to the college curriculum to countervail the prevailing focus on modernism and to counteract the twenty-first century proliferation of atheist tracts. Today, the study of Aristotelianism, if approached at all, is offered only as a periodically available option. The loss is a critical omission. In contrast, the present college curriculum is dominated by the philosophy of modernism. Ten names seem to dominate the discourse: Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Voltaire, Rousseau, Freud, Darwin, Marx, Sartre, and Derrida. Two names, the first and the last, can serve to fairly bracket the era of modernism. Yet, the beginning of the twenty-first century marked a clear divide in the course of philosophy. While the origins of the new branch can be traced to the wide stream of modernism, the sudden strength of its flow, nonetheless, required that its direction be charted. The new direction was no longer a philosophy; it was a statement of atheism. Aristotelianism, has survived, and has overcome every assault against it through the length of history. The endurance of the structure has come not to rest on the approval of academics and intellectuals, but because it has drawn to itself the love of normal men and women. This has taken place when they seek to know if there is a God and if they possess an immortal soul.
