Thomas Aquinas on Augustine - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 145
Augustine/Thomas/Höffe: Thomas AquinasVsAugustine: in the commentary on aphorism, Thomas Aquinas overcomes the Augustinian doctrine which was predominant at that time.
In place of a knowledge through enlightenment, a view inspired once again by Aristotle takes its place.
>Knowledge, >Cognition, >Epistemology, >Aristotle.
According to this view, all cognition starts with sensory perception and is brought into a mental form by the active mind (intellectus agens) through abstraction.
>Sensory impressions, >Mind.
Thomas per Augustine: Like Augustine, Thomas sees the natural goal of the human mind in the knowledge of God. Here, as in almost all areas, [Thomas'] thinking is theocentric.
