(p.89) Chapter 7 Is the Ethical Eudaimonism of Saint Thomas Too Self-Centered?
The Creative Retrieval of Saint Thomas Aquinas

W. Norris Clarke, SJ

Fordham University Press

This chapter answers the question: Is the ethical eudaimonism of Saint Thomas too self-centered? This criticism of the teleological approach of Saint Thomas deserves careful reflection on the part of Thomists and some adjustment in the way his doctrine is presented. It is important to differentiate the context of two approaches provided by Saint Thomas and the von Hildebrand school.

Keywords:   ethical eudaimonism, Saint Thomas, teleological approach, Thomists, von Hildebrand school
