D.C. Schindler of the John Paul Institute at the Catholic University of America Professor of Metaphysics and Anthropology presents this lecture sponsored by the Department of Philosophy.

In the high Middle Ages, love was typically associated most directly with goodness, as distinct from the older tradition that connected love above all with beauty. Although Thomas Aquinas himself links love and goodness, this lecture will explore the traces of the older tradition that remain in his thought and discuss what seem to be the implications for the meaning of love more generally
