  1. Brian Mooney & Mark R. Nowacki, Aquinas on Connaturality and Education.
    Connatural knowledge is knowledge readily acquired by beings possessing a certain nature. For instance, dogs have knowledge of a scent-world exceeding that of human beings, not because humans lack noses, but because dogs are by nature better suited to process olfaction. As various ethicists have argued, possession of the virtues involves a sort of connatural knowing. Here, connatural knowledge emerges as a knowledge by inclination which systematically tracks the specific moral interests we humans possess precisely because we are human. In (...)

  2. Thomas Brian Mooney & Mark Nowacki, Aquinas, Education and the East.
    A confluence of scholarly interest has resulted in a revival of Thomistic scholarship across the world. Several areas in the investigation of St. Thomas Aquinas, however, remain under-explored. This volume contributes to two of these neglected areas. First, the volume evaluates the contemporary relevance of St. Thomas's views for the philosophy and practice of education. The second area explored involves the intersections of the Angelic Doctor’s thought and the numerous cultures and intellectual traditions of the East. Contributors to this section (...)

  6. T. Mooney, John Williams & Mark Nowacki (2011). Kovesi and the Formal and Material Elements of Concepts. Philosophia 39 (4):699-720.
    In his seminal work Moral Notions , Julius Kovesi presents a novel account of concept formation. At the heart of this account is a distinction between what he terms the material element and the formal element of concepts. This paper elucidates his distinction in detail and contrasts it with other distinctions such as form-matter, universal-particular, genus-difference, necessary-sufficient, and open texture-closed texture. We situate Kovesi’s distinction within his general philosophical method, outlining his views on concept formation in general and explain how (...)

  8. John Williams, Thomas Brian Mooney & Mark Nowacki, Virtue, Connaturality and Know-How.
    Virtue epistemology is new in one sense but old in another. The new tradition starts with figures such as Code (1984), Greco (1993), Montmarquet (1987), and Zagzebski (1999). The old tradition has its pedigree in Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, and their modern interpreters such as Anscombe (2005) and MacIntyre (1988; 2001). Virtue epistemology recognizes that knowledge is something we value and that propositional knowledge requires intellectual virtues, that is to say, virtues as applied to the intellect. Although much pioneering work in (...)

  14. Mark Nowacki, Death Stings Back: A Reply to Sorensen's 'the Cheated God'.
    Lucretius argues that death does not harm the person who dies. Harm could occur only if a person’s future non-existence were harmful. But one’s future non-existence is no more harmful than one’s non-existence prior to being born. Since a person is not harmed by lacking existence prior to being born, it follows that one is not harmed by lacking existence after dying. There is thus no need to fear death’s sting.
