I tried to come up with a figure for the number of words I’ve written. My best guess is 200,000 words in 1) publishing (tax law headnotes, semi-journalistic stories, and editorial); 2) seven news and feature stories for a daily; 3) novel, short stories, and true stories; and 4) blog/diary. In addition, as a patrol officer, I wrote hundreds of reports, not published! Nevertheless, all of it is a puny amount compared to Thomas.
His branch of philosophy is called Thomistic. Before Aquinas died at age 49, he wrote numerous other treatises. Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle lived in Athens for most of their lives. Socrates taught Plato, who taught Aristotle, who left a body of work for Aquinas.
All of history is present to God the Father, and it matters.
