An early Dominican argument about Being

Two future Dominican friars carry on with a disputatio on the nature of being qua being. If you can't follow the argument, don't worry. . .it's highly technical.

  1. That's pretty much what I heard (or at least understood it as such) during my seminary classes.

    You can tell the one on the right is most definitely inclined toward being a Dominican, because while he disputes, he still has one hand on the freezer door, trying to get it open at one point.

    The one on the right also seems closer to keeping with St. Dominic's practice of walking barefoot, although he seems to take a different approach. Rather than walking barefoot in private and wearing shoes in public, he's taken a balanced approach indicating that one must be in the world but not of the world, both about conversation and about one's daily (fridge) work.
