Et hoc dicimus Deum

Giornale di Metafisica 31 (3):465 - 480 (2009)
Abstract
The five ways to God or the so-called proofs of God’s existence according to St. Thomas require the study of numerous conditions of intelligibility. In principle ’Doctor communis’ excludes the possibility of an intuition of God. Thus, the existence of God is not seen as an object of intuition, unlike what exists in our common experience. Hence, the article attempts to specify the meaning of different terms like ’esse, essentia, existentia, esse actus, esse in actu’ and so forth. In conclusion one can say that the ’ways’ of Aquinas do not share the destiny of so-called onto-theological proofs of the existence of God
