Fr. Aquinas Guilbeau Receives Ave Maria Dissertation Prize
October 18, 2017
Fr. Aquinas’ dissertation “Charles De Koninck’s Defense of the Primacy of the Common Good”, is essentially a commentary on the important work of Charles De Koninck written in defense of the common good as the highest kind of good.
Fr. Aquinas gave students and faculty a presentation on his dissertation research and summarized the question at stake as “Is the particular good subject to the common good or vice versa”. De Koninck gave a trenchant defense that the particular good is subject to the common good, and Fr. Aquinas, in turn, defends De Koninck’s account.
Congratulations, Fr. Aquinas!
