    Aristotle in Aquinas’s Moral Theory: Reason, Virtue, and Emotion.Leonard Ferry - 2013 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 87:167-182.
    Eleonore Stump has recently argued that the Aristotelian foundations of Aquinas’s virtue theory have not only been exaggerated but are mistaken. She does not dispute Aquinas’s familiarity with and dependence on Aristotle’s moral theory. Instead, she argues that Aquinas’s ethics must be seen as essentially second-personal, where the central relationship is between the moral agent and the Holy Spirit, specifically the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the theological virtues. Her argument for displacing Aristotle, however, advances on at least two (...)

    Bound by the Good.Leonard Ferry - 2018 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 92:241-260.
    Political authority is not eliminable, even if in a globalizing world order the particulars of its exercise might be undergoing a transformation. What matters to political philosophy is whether or not its existence and exercise can be justified. In this paper I begin by contrasting two paradigmatic approaches to justifications of political authority and political obligation: political naturalism and political voluntarism. Having set the stage for the debate, I connect Aquinas’s account of political authority with the former—though one will not (...)

    Sorting Out Reason’s Relation to the Passions in the Moral Theory of Aquinas.Leonard Ferry - 2014 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 88:227-244.
    This essay challenges a growing consensus among Aquinas scholars who attribute to him a pro-passion attitude, linking his virtue theory to accounts of emotion that see the emotions in a primarily positive light. There are good reasons for thinking Aquinas far more skeptical of the role to be played by emotion in the virtuous life—indeed, one can safely argue, in agreement with Aquinas, that the emotions are often threats to and so in need of control by the virtues. I focus (...)
