A.  Placement of hypens in these titles is open to revision.  If you have some sort of authoritative advice on the matter, please let me know.

B.  I've been reading Wippel's The Metaphysical Thought of Thomas Aquinas and I find the author's writing a little too slow.  Plus he's inherited the anti-essentialist paranoia of Gilson and company.  If all goes well, look forward to a defense in later posts of the Thomistic axiom (which Gilson and the "existential Thomist" tradition reject) that being is the first thing known by the intellect.

C.  This is all rather obscure.
