DR. TEMPLE ' S AQUINAS LECTURE SIR-Of course, what I said (or

meant) at the Aquinas Society meeting did not deny the absolute primacy of Intelligence over Will, but asserted that for us rnen in our earthly condition the primacy is with Will and Love -an assertion which St. Thomas does not merely " admit " but reiterates and proves. My point was to thank the Archbishop of Canterbury for helping us to realise that our Thomistic studies and teachings should meet an urgent modern need, and that they themselves were therefore also a work of Love and Mercy.

His speech was not only a great encouragement; it was also a very serious challenge to us, not only as a manifestation of the urgency of our work, but also for its frank and thoughtful exposition of those very important details of , the Thomist .'map '' which our versions of it have allowed him (with many others) to regard as unsatisfactory.
