On Being and Essence by Thomas Aquinas


“For human nature itself exists in the intellect abstracted from all individuating conditions, whence it is uniformly related to all individuals [of this nature] outside the soul, being equally a similitude of all, and thus leading to the cognition of all, insofar as they are humans. And since it has this sort of relation to all individuals [of this nature], the intellect forms the notion of species and attributes to it and this is why the Commentator remarks in his commentary on Book 1 of On the Soul that it is the intellect that produces universality in things.” ~ Thomas Aquinas in On Being and Essence

This was my second time attending an event at this place, and was my first business event here (the other event was a charity show). Everything at Chicago event venues was perfect, the drinks and food was amazing. Even the coffee was wonderful.
