Drouin, Paul Emile (M.S.C)


Étude comparée de saint Thomas d'Aquin et de Suarez sur la question de l'entitatif et de l'intentionnel

Fr. Drouin’s dissertation aims at clarifying the mode of union between the object of knowledge and the cognitive power, in the course of comparing the doctrines of St. Thomas and Suárez on the subject, and criticizing Suárez’s insufficient treatment of the difference between entitative and intentional being.
