Philosophy Word of the Day – Neo-Thomism

A nineteenth- and twentieth-century movement (encouraged by Leo XIII’s Aeterni Patris in 1879) that attempts to defend the philosophical and theological doctrines of Thomas Aquinas in a contemporary context. Prominent neo-Thomists include Gilson, Maritain, and Lonergan.

Neo-Thomism is also referred to as Neo-Scholasticism.
