Interested in splitting the cost of a Philosophy course?

  • Is anyone interested in splitting the cost of the The Philosophy of Human Nature course by Aquinas School of Philosophy?

    I know they are traditionalists; they may not be perfect but I think this would be an important subject. There are 25 CD's total. The cost is $100, so its a little steep for me to purchase alone. The more who buy in, the cheaper it is for all of us. It would be nice to have at least 4 people to buy in to make this possible.  Here's the description:

    The Philosophy of Human Nature


    A Magnificent Course by Dennis Bonnette, Ph.D.
    - Professor of Thomistic Philosophy -
    - Co-founder of the Aquinas School of Philosophy with Dr. Raphael Waters -

    • You will not have an adequate understanding of Ethics (how man ought to behave) unless you have a proper understanding of Human Nature (what man is).

    • You will be astonished at all there is to learn, how fascinating it is, and how helpful this Course is to everyday life!

    Our Catholic formation is deficient without a
    knowledge and understanding of Thomistic Philosophy

    Dr. Bonnette has a genius for making the complex easy to understand.

    Topics covered:

    The Nature of Life • The Unity of Living Beings • True and False Views of Human Nature • Answers to Errors in Modern Philosophy • The Central Contribution of Aristotle and Aquinas • The Perils of a Materialistic Approach to Human Nature • The Five External Senses • The Four Internal Senses • Difference Between Intellect and Sensation • Difference Between the Image and the Concept • Intellect: The Spiritual Faculty of Understanding • Distinction Between Immaterial and Spiritual • The Immortality of the Soul Proved by Reason • So-called “Ape Language”: Proof that Animals do not possess Intelligence • The Human Will • Emotions and Volition • The Falsehood of “Reincarnation”, much more...

    25 audio CDs plus a CD of Dr. Bonnette’s Course Notes...

    - SPECIAL LIMITED TIME OFFER - ORDER NOW AND GET A FREE BONUS SET:

    Never before released

    Be part of the what we hope to be a much-needed Thomistic revival in the Church.

    “Dr. Bonnette is one of the most logical teachers I’ve ever known. His courses on
    Thomistic Philosophy are magnificent. He is especially gifted in showing
    the manifold errors of atheism and the errors of scientific materialism,
    and how this spills over to a false understanding of human nature. He
    is espeically gifted in giving the student every link in the chain of reasoning
    that brings the students to clear conclusions.”
    – John Vennari, Catholic Family News

  • I'm not clear on what you mean by splitting the cost.
    What return shall I make to the Lord for all the things that He hath given unto me?

  • Ah, thanks MC; by 'splitting the cost' I mean if multiple people purchase and share the program. Any number of methods could be used to do this. It wouldn't even have to involve postage mail.

  • You're not talking about making copies of the CDs, are you? How else could it be shared?

    There are multiple ways that it could be shared in the same way it might be shared if purchased by a group of friends who lived near each other (as I imagine anyone interested in this- which doesn't seem to be the case- wouldn't live close to me).

    It could be copied to one's computer, or uploaded to a private site or e-mail.

    What are you getting at MC? Do you think this would be piracy?

    The word 'copies' sounds suspicious to me. Maybe I misunderstand. If someone pays for only a portion of the course, but gets all of it by making copies, wouldn't that be a form of theft, unless you had permission from the seller?
