Should I become Catholic only because I really, really, really like Aristotle?
>>
Can't you just be Aristotelian or some sort of neo-Aristotelian in philosophy? What do you need the Catholicism for?
>>
Read Aquinas, and if you can accept his synthesis of greek philosophy, then go for it.

Otherwise, there are various neo-Aristotelian thinkers who aren't religious.
>>
Why would Semitic monotheism play any part in your love with Hellenic philosopher?
>>
> There's people on /his/ who takes Catholicism serious
Reminds me of the two threads some weeks ago where someone said /pol/ convinced them to be Catholic while still being an atheist and the other one how they fell for the "deus vult" meme. Thread like these shows you that they're LARPers in denial.

Ain't no need for labels hun. Church can be fun every once in a while though if you feel like going. Been to some masses that get boring and you know, but other times I tried a different church and it was really insightful and for some reason relevant to what I was going through at the time

Aristotle lived long before christ, how does that make sense at all?
>>
>>569503
The prevailing understanding of Aristotelianism is mainly influenced by scholastic tradition. Without that, he can be interpreted in various non-traditional ways.
>>
>>569503
Acquinas' basically took Aristotle's word as law, and so every since Catholic metaphysics has more or less just been some variation of Aristotle's.
