The author, Br. Francis Maluf M.I.C.M. dedicates this volume (and the eight to follow) to Our Lady under her title Seat of Wisdom. As the Immaculate Mother of the Eternal Truth the Blessed Virgin Mary had more wisdom than all the angels and saints combined; therefore, being such a mother, she, in her mortal life, contemplated divine wisdom in all its manifold expressions in God’s abundant creation. In imitation of Saint Thomas of Aquinas, Brother Francis teaches the wisdom of natural philosophic truth under the light of supernatural revelation. After “the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us” there is no other way to teach natural wisdom except as the “handmaid of theology.” This Introduction is meant to whet the appetite of those who seek to know the higher things in order that they may love the same in the Most High. Each discipline has its own chapter: Logic, Cosmology, Psychology, Ethics, History of Philosophy (Part I & II), Epistemology and Ontology (Metaphysics). Great for the higher grades in home schools as well as for those adults who have never studied philosophy. Pages: 188.
