Daniel De Haan

Participants in this workshop will read and discuss work in progress from Daniel De Haan's current monograph project on the problem of human knowledge of singulars in St. Thomas Aquinas. This book builds upon his past research on the vis cogitativa in Aquinas by focusing on objections to his account of human rational knowledge of material singulars, and the implications these objections have for his metaphysics of mind and arguments for the immateriality of the rational soul.

De Haan is the Frederick Copleston Senior Research Fellow & Lecturer in Philosophy and Theology in the Catholic Tradition at Blackfriars and Campion Hall, Oxford University. His research focuses on philosophical anthropology, philosophy of religion, and medieval philosophy especially in the work of Thomas Aquinas and Avicenna. He is the author of Necessary Existence and the Doctrine of Being in Avicenna’s Metaphysics of the Healing (Brill, 2020).

Registrants will receive the workshop's reading in advance via email.
