What Is a Thomist?

Posted on the 30 December 2015 by Calvinthedog

A Thomist is clearly a practitioner of Thomism, a branch of philosophy. What is Thomism? Who does it refer to? Is Thomism associated with religion and if so, which one? Are Thomists generally liberals or conservatives?

I just learned about Thomism yesterday. I was familiar of course with the man it is named after, but I did not realize a whole branch of philosophy had sprung up in his name as in Nietzscheans, Marxism, Aristotelians or Platonism.

A rather interesting subfield. So what is it anyway, all of you beyond highbrow types?
