The Catholic Tradition Podcast: 159


Could 5, 2023

Catholic College of America Press not too long ago
launched a serious new sequence: the
English Vital Version of the Works of
Karol Wojtyła/John Paul II. The primary quantity of the sequence was
a brand new translation of Wojtyła’s 1969 guide Individual and Act,
together with associated essays.

In Individual and Act Wojtyła set forth
the inspiration of his mix of phenomenology, Thomism and
personalism, a basis underlying a lot of his different
philosophical and theological writing. The primary English
translation is usually thought-about to be fairly inaccurate, and,
crucially, eliminated the Latin phrases by which Wojtyła refers back to the
Thomistic and scholastic custom, resulting in a misunderstanding
that Wojtyła was way more of a pure phenomenologist and fewer of a
Thomist than he actually was. Thus the brand new translation by Gregorz
Ignatik is a major second for the reception of Wojtyła/John
Paul II’s thought within the Anglosphere.

On this episode, Timothy Flanders joins Thomas
Mirus to debate Individual and Act as they try and
boil down a number of the key factors of this relatively difficult guide,
to set Wojtyła’s philosophy in its mental, cultural, and
non secular context, and displaying why his insights about human
consciousness, the expertise of morality, and the particular person are
necessary for us as effectively.

Factors mentioned embrace:

  • How Wojtyła’s use of phenomenology and
    personalism pertains to the standard Aristo-Thomistic
    anthropology
  • The significance of phenomenological strategies
    for the “therapeutic of expertise” and giving an goal account of
    the subjective
  • Correcting trendy errors about
    consciousness
  • The idea of the particular person in relation to the
    conventional idea of human nature
  • The necessity to combine cognition with
    expertise and the hazard of the “emotionalization of
    consciousness”
  • The centrality of morality to personhood
