The specific question to be considered

The specific question to be considered over the next few months is: “Is the moderate epistemological realism of Aquinas a better approach to understanding the world around us than Ockham’s nominalism?”. I will be preparing a lecture on this topic that I will post as a Powerpoint, WMV file recording and a transcript of the lecture. Your comments and suggestions are invited and will be much appreciated.

This is a first post on what will be a blog on realist epistemology and metaphysics. The first topic is a discussion of the moderate realist epistemology of Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas versus the nominalistic epistemology common in modern and contemporary philosophy.
