Title QuotedCommentarius in secundum librum Sententiarum Petri Lombardi
Date (Year/Month/Day)1941/03/26
QuotationSaint Bonaventure on the problem of the relation of the intellect, memory and will, to the substance of the soul. Are they three separate substances, of which the soul is made up? Can that be? No. Are they three accidents of one substance as Saint Thomas thinks? No. When he says they are accidents, he has to immediately qualify them as accidents in no ordinary sense, because the substance of the soul cannot be considered apart from them. Hereafter two quotations from I. Sent. 3.2. 1.3. Concl. T-I. p.86. and II. Sent. ad 8th T.II. p.562.
Quotation SourceRun to the mountain: The Story of a Vocation. The journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 1, 1939-1941.; Edited by Patrick Hart, O.C.S.O. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1995, p. 328
