The relationship between Aquinas and Aristotle[edit]

So. Aquinas composed a commentary on Aristotle's 'Physics'. Doesn't that make him a physicist?

No. And that seems like an exceedingly naïve thing to say. The modern discipline of physics is far removed from Aristotle's treatise and conception of it, as a cursory glance would tell you. Elizium23 (talk) 06:16, 17 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I don't want to be a party-pooper but I went on the Wikipedia page of Aristotle's Physics and as far as the relationship between that tract and its significance to philosophy and science in the modern world, philosopher Martin Heidegger and Italian theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli are amenable to my position. Bertrand Russell, on the other hand, would agree with you.

So I think we are at loggerheads. How do we reconcile this antinomy?

Aquinas and Marx[edit]

I see Labor theory of value was recently added to Category:Thomas_Aquinas. Would it be appropriate to add a comparison between Aquinas and Marx either here or in the just price article? Aquinas' critiques as oughts could be compared to Marx' is's. KetchupSalt (talk) 08:29, 3 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Primary Image[edit]

An IP removed the altar piece image and replaced it with a work by Sandro Botticelli. Its a very good image and shows Aquinas well, but should it be replaced with the altar piece again for the sake of recognizability? I'd say so. This article seems to be heavily edited lately so I would like to get some consensus before restoring the altar image. Chariotsacha (talk) 18:26, 14 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
