Introducing Thomistic Thinker!

I’m excited to announce Thomistic Thinker! The goal of this blog is to develop my deeper, philosophical reflections as it pertains to various metaphysical, ethical, and political issues from a Thomistic perspective. I’m a very strong believer in common sense – which in my view entails classical conservatism – not just as a philosophical approach but as a way of life. The sheer simplicity, beauty, and self-evident nature of common sense puts many of our modern philosophical ideas to shame. I will be explicating and defending common sense as Aristotle, Aquinas, Reid, Moore, Adler, Feser, Oderberg, and many others have done.

Allow me to briefly introduce myself: My name is Gil Sanders and I’m 29 years old. I’m a philosopher by night, an IT nerd by morning, and a Christian through it all.  I studied under Edward Feser at Pasadena City College and got my bachelors in philosophy at Cal State Los Angeles. I am currently working on my Master’s in Philosophy at SES. What I am most known for is my paper entitled, “An Aristotelian Approach to Quantum Mechanics.” When I’m not being a bore, I enjoy playing the guitar, doing photography, editing video, and debating people on social media.

I welcome you to explore the wondrous world of Thomistic thought with me. Sometimes I’ll be wrong; sometimes I’ll be right. But one thing is for certain: seeking truth, wherever it leads, is necessary to leading a good life.

Here’s to Making Common Sense Great Again!
