This volume contains a series of papers given in November of 1995 at a conference dedicated to Maritain’s ontology and gnoseology. In fact, as the editor remarks in the introduction, while Maritain is well known for his philosophy of politics, of history, of spirituality, of art, and of education, we are still lacking a clear picture of Maritain’s metaphysics. The core of Maritain’s metaphysics is to be found in an “integral cognoscitive realism... in which concrete individuals exercise on their own and with incredible energy the act of existing”. Moreover, Maritain’s standpoint is highly welcome today, given that many discussions are focused on the need contemporary philosophy apparently has to attack ontology.
