Ponencias: 

  • “Averroes and Aquinas on the Dialectical Nature of Revealed Theology,” en el “Saint Thomas d'Aquin et ses sources arabes / Aquinas and the Arabs,” Sorbona, Paris, junio 2012. Resumen: Two of the greatest Aristotelian commentators, Averroes and Aquinas, used the Aristotelian distinction between demonstrative, dialectical, and rhetorical discourses to assign an epistemological status to religious or theological knowledge, that is, to conclusions drawn from revelation. But their respective views on this point turned out to be very different, even opposite. Averroes considered religious knowledge to be dialectical in nature, whereas Aquinas believed revealed Christian theology to be a demonstrative science. The author shows that both of these greater Aristotelian commentators strive, although very differently, to be faithful to Aristotle concerning the epistemological status of theology. Ultimately, however, their approaches converge, particularly insofar as in both accounts, theology is dialectical in nature, at least in a qualified sense in the case of Aquinas.

  • "The Reception of Averroes’s Abstractionist Theory of Intentionality in the Latin West,” en el “Annual Fall Research Seminar Conference: Aquinas and ‘The Arabs’,” Universidad Panamericana, México, D.F., octubre 2011. Resumen: Recent scholarship has paid renewed attention to the medieval problem of intentionality and the internal senses, especially within the texts of Aquinas and Avicenna. Yet less attention has been paid to the influence of Averroes and St. Albert the Great in the process of transmission between Avicenna and Aquinas. This paper aims to fill that lacuna by focusing on Averroes’ abstractionist contribution to the debate and especially on St. Albert’s pivotal role in its reception in the Latin West. The essay is divided into three parts. Part One briefly reviews the polemic among the Arabs. On the one hand, Avicenna—as is well documented—posited principles of interior sense perception that result in a total of five interior senses, which are distinct on the basis of their objects: the common sense and the retentive imagination have ‘images’ as their objects, the estimative and memorative faculties have ‘intentions’ as their objects, and the compositive imagination has the role of joining images and intentions. On the other hand, Averroes rejected Avicenna’s principles, reduced the number of interior senses to four, and assigned to each the role of abstracting an ‘intention’ from an ‘image’. Part Two breaks new ground by examining St. Albert’s reception and assimilation of the two divergent Arabic theories, which result in a clever amalgam between Avicenna’s overall principles and framework and Averroes’ abstractionist account. Part Three closes the paper by taking a fresh look at Aquinas in light of the debate among his predecessors.
  • "Religión y violencia en Tomás de Aquino” en el XVI Congreso Internacional de Filosofía Filosofía: razón y violencia, Panel: Filosofía Medieval, Toluca, México, D.F., Octubre 2011. Resumen: En nuestros tiempos, la idea de usar violencia en nombre de la religión es casi sinónimo de irracionalidad y fanatismo religioso. Por esto resulta un poco sorprendente el que Tomás de Aquino, cuyo frío razonamiento sobre la fe cristiana aún hoy día es tomado como modelo de síntesis entre fe y razón, defienda el uso de la violencia física en ciertos casos como medio para reprimir la herejía y defender la religión cristiana. Esta ponencia reúne los textos del Aquinate sobre el tema con el fin de trazar su argumento en defensa de la violencia religiosa. Sin defender la postura de Aquino como verdadera o como viable para nuestros tiempos, el autor pretende demostrar que Tomás, lejos de caer en la irracionalidad cuando aborda este tema, defiende su postura de manera racional y coherente, en su típico estilo escolástico. Para comprender su razonamiento, es preciso tener en cuenta sus principios filosóficos y especialmente los teológicos.
  • "The Finality of Religion in St. Thomas Aquinas,” en el Coloquio de Profesores, Universidad Panamericana, Sede México, D.F., octubre 2010. Resumen: In this paper I ask the question “what is the end of religious worship?” The end cannot be God, for he cannot be perfected; nor can it be the worshipper, for that would imply a certain selfishness which must be absent in a perfect act of worship. I examine the standard Thomistic account, represented by Cajetan, and I argue that a more nuanced view of the issue is to be developed in view of Aquinas’ many texts on the issue, scattered about his corpus. The paper aims to reach this nuanced view.

  • “Averroes’ Retrograde Revision of Avicenna’s Theory of Internal-Sense Intentionality,” en “The International Conference on Ancient and Medieval Philosophy,” Fordham University, Section: “Averroes, Aquinas, and Avicenna,” octubre 2004. Resumen: In this paper I compare Avicenna’s and Averroes’ notions of “intention” (ma‘na, intentio) and show how Averroes’ understanding aims to revise Avicenna’s and make it conform to a more orthodox Aristotelian framework, thus preparing the way for the adoption of this notion in Western Medieval thought.
  • “For the Love of God! The Common Good as Aquinas’ Way Out of Pantheism,” en “The Philosophy Graduate Student Association’s Conference on the Common Good,” Marquette University, mayo 2004. Resumen: This paper presents a problematic argument in Aquinas’ Summa (I.60.5), where he claims that, in general, the part loves the whole more than itself and, therefore, all creatures love God more than themselves. I contend that this argument, apart from it being very odd, implies that creatures are parts of God. But in view of Aquinas’ doctrine elsewhere, it is difficult to see how this pantheism is coherent within the whole of his metaphysics. The paper makes an attempt at resolving this difficulty by appealing to Aquinas’ doctrine of the common good.
  • “The Possibility of Altruism within an Eudaimonistic Framework,” en “The Philosophy Graduate Student Colloquium,” Marquette University, October 2001. 

Resumen: Eudaimonism claims that every being seeks its own perfection and happiness. This seems to be an essentially egoisticclaim. Yet in Aquinas, whose ethical thought represents an unmitigated sort of eudaimonism, allows for the possibility altruism. The paper argues that eudaimonism is possible within this eudaimonistic framework given the Aristotelian-Thomistic doctrine of friendship, where the “other” (the friend) is considered to be “another self.” This breaches the gap, for the eudaimonist, between the self and the other. 

  • “Freedom and the Goodness-Aspect of Choice,” en “The Philosophy Graduate Student Colloquium,” Franciscan University of Steubenville, diciembre 2000. 

Resumen: Aquinas claims that, since the object of the will is the good, the will can only seek that which is good, or at least apparently good. This seems to preclude the possibility of committing truly culpable acts, since it implies that all that is sought is sought under the appearance of good. This is further complicated by Aquinas’ claim that all things (and presumably all choices) are to some degree good, at least insofar as, to some extent at least, they all have being, which is convertible with goodness. The paper solves this issue by arguing that “nolition” (from the Latin, nolo) is what accounts of the evil in an immoral act, where the will shuns a good that is commanded by the natural law in favor of a good that precludes what is commanded by the natural law.
