Thomas Aquinas' Psychology of Fear, with Nathan Cartagena, pt. 1

November 08, 2020

Show Notes

This is part one of a two-part discussion on Thomas Aquinas’ psychology of fear. Dr. Cartagena starts us off here with some background on how he came to study Aquinas and his psychology of fear as his dissertation topic, what to expect when we study Aquinas, an overview of his psychology of fear, and a bit about how Dr. Cartagena ties Aquinas into his current studies and to a very real problem of our time: racism and white supremacy.
