#50 - Fr. Thomas and Dr. Fimister, authors of ”Integralism: A Manual of Political Philosophy”

February 8, 2022

Sean interviews Fr. Thomas and Dr. Fimister, the authors of "Integralism", which attempts to offer a thoroughly scholastic/Thomistic perspective on political philosophy, especially inspired by the social encyclicals of Popes Leo XIII and Pius XI.

They discuss the kingship, priesthood, and patriarchy of our first father Adam and how this changed after the Fall; the religious orientation of the natural law; taxation; the social contract and the State; distinctions on employment, servitude, and slavery; usury; centralization, scale, and distributism; and unjust governments.
