THE ACT OF CONTEMPLATION IN THE VIEW OF ST. THOMAS AQUINAS

Contemplation is an act that exposes the highest existential status of man in the surrounding reality. In view of Christian philosophy, most people today choose the active life at the expense of the contemplative. This attitude hinders contemplation, since man is mostly absorbed in external activities aimed at the accumulation of material goods. However, ideally, practical activities should encourage and subordinate the inner feelings and passions of the soul to the cognitive value of truth and the impact of goodness, supporting contemplation aimed at the beauty of being. Intellectual and volitional perfection and, consequently, even the contemplation of the beauty of the Absolute, are the way to optimum potentiae.
