Video from The Thomistic Institute
"St. Thomas Aquinas refers to the human person as the horizon of creation—the meeting of heaven and earth. We are composite beings—embodied souls—with a complex makeup. In Aristotle and St. Thomas’s understanding, the soul is just what makes a living thing to be alive. It animates or informs the body. In addition, the soul is the principle of our engagement with the environment—the seat of our vital activities. It initiates these activities through powers. This video will provide a first look at the powers of the soul. Powers of the Soul - A First Look (Aquinas 101) - Fr. Gregory Pine, O.P." from video introduction.
