Thomas Aquinas: Philosophy



  • 'That which has a divine cause, not that whose cause a human person fails to understand'
  • Highlights that miracles are caused by God
  • MARK 2:1-12: Jesus curing the paralytic man - religious believer would not care how the man was cured, just the fact that he was cured
  • Gets his ideas from ARISTOTLE; everything that exists has a nature, miracles having a 'divine cause' - the event is not part of normal things
  • Christians would also say that miracles also reveal something about God to people


  • poke of God as being simple, as God signifies being/existing
  • God's nature and existance are the SAME…
