WE HAVE MOVED TO A PERMANENT WEBSITE!!! 
 Our new domain name is www.societyofscholastics.org
The website is still being constructed, so several of the pages are not accessible.  HOWEVER, the LORENZELLI LIBRARY IS ONLINE!!  All who have requested membership will receive their passwords THIS WEEK which will allow them access to the online literature.  Every few days, more books will be added to the library.  So check back often!  
To all who have written the Society concerning membership or the DISPUTATIO forum and have not yet received a response, we will email you as soon as possible.  Promoting our Society has hindered a rapid email response rate and so we ask your patience. 
Since this temporary website went online just a few weeks ago we have received membership requests and offers of assistance from all over the world.  Thank you for your support and we hope to have you as a member!
 
-The Schoolmen

 
 
~Welcome to the temporary website of the Society of Schoolmen~
 
We are a fledgling foundation commited to restoring the philosophic doctrines, didactic principles, and scientific synthesis of the greatest masters of the medieval universities, the Scholastics.  We hold Thomas of Aquin above all other philosophers as the most perfect thinker among the Scholastics and we apply ourselves to renewing the great tradition of Thomistic Philosophy forged by his Commentators throughout the centuries.    
 
Most of this temporary website is yet under construction, and so we ask your patience.

"One system of philosophy alone, amidst the incessant endeavours of the many systems through centuries to investigate the inmost mysteries of reality, has been able to stand without modification in its fundamental tenets, and this is the philosophy of St. Thomas.  Today its stability and breadth is such that it serves as an excellent basis and principle of unification for all the results of philosophical speculation reached by the various sciences of modern times.  We are convinced, and in this we feel confident we are not mistaken, that all who have the courage to pursue his philosophy to the bottom and follow its logical conclusions will agree with us that concerning the analysis of the activity and processes of the mind, concerning the inner nature of body, living being and man, concerning the foundations of speculative science and ethical philosophy, no other man has even thought and written with the power of St. Thomas Aquinas."  -D. Mercier
