Thomism for the 21st Century - Mary Hirschfeld

Dr. Mary Hirschfeld introduces some central ideas of St Thomas Aquinas, which she suggests provide the deeper foundational assumptions beneath Catholic social teaching. His thinking may find the basic architecture for CST and the creative answers to the dilemmas of the ongoing economic crisis. She explores Thomas’s view of life as teleological, thus shaping our lives in an analogical pattern that can reflect God’s creative activity in an ordered way. In economic terms Dr. Hirschfeld considers hedonistic economics, property rights and pricing.
