This book explores the metaphysical underpinnings of theories of human nature, personhood, and the self. The coverage of the work is broad in scope, moving from the Pre-Socratics to Postmodernism, critically assessing what transpired during the intervening 2500 year period, with a special focus on the contributions of the Aristotelian/Thomistic tradition of inquiry. The work is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of readers, from beginners to more advanced students.

About the Author:

Joseph Torchia, O.P., is associate professor of philosophy at Providence College. He is the editor-in-chief of The Thomist and the author of Plotinus, Tolma, and the Descent of Being: An Exposition and Analysis and Creatio ex nihilo and the Theology of St. Augustine: The Anti-Manichaean Polemic And Beyond.

Review:

Readers undeterred by fears of "foundationalism" will appreciate Torchia's study as a hearty meal in a day when so many offerings are thin and unsatisfying. . . . Exploring Personhood is modestly offered as an "alternative account." It is an account that deserves attention, especially by those disinclined to examine it. (Theological Studies, September 1, 2009)

Exploring Personhood is much more than an introductory text. It argues for the Thomistic view of the human person in our world of seemingly irreconcilable pluralism in philosophy through a sweeping survey of the history of Western philosophy from the Presocratics to Postmodernism. (Roland Teske, S.J., Marquette University)
