Jacques Maritain

Jacques Maritain (1882-1973) was perhaps the greatest Catholic philosopher of the twentieth century. A convert, along with his wife Ra´ssa, from agnosticism to Catholicism, Maritain wrote extensively on metaphysics, aesthetics, epistemology, ethics, social and political philosophy, and the philosophy of history-all with the guiding inspiration of the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas.
