Ressourcement and the Retrieval of Thomism for the Contemporary World

Stephen M Fields SJ. "Ressourcement and the Retrieval of Thomism for the Contemporary World." Ressourcement: A Movement for Renewal in Twentieth Century Catholic Theology. Ed. Gabriel Flynn and Paul D. Murray. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2012: 355-71

This essay brings Max Seckler's retrieval of the instinct of faith in Aquinas into dialogue with Augustine's "Confessions." In so doing, it develops a model of the relation between nature and grace that embodies the defining hallmarks of modernity. The model grounds human creativity in the divine transcendence while retaining the integrity of both. Moreover, it evinces the levels of analogy that constitute the relation of nature and grace. It thus posits a view of analogy capable of embracing the complexity of events in history, both human and cosmic.
