ABSTRACT
Ioan Miclea’s so-called “meeting” with the Thomist philosophy took place in Tg. Mureş, (while he was a professor of religion), through the works of Jacques Maritain. What he had tried to find out until then in philosophy, he found in the work of St. Thomas. He felt that the truth lay beyond the surface of things, within their intimate reality. Lost in the scruffy of the modern philosophy, Miclea finds the path and reaches to find Thomas, before giving up philosophy, as he was going to do at a given moment. The first reading of one of Ioan Miclea’s texts (usually, any first reading is somehow superficial) shows us an exuberant author, a simple man who honors the writings of the Thomist writings or those of Maritain whose poor scientific training is hiding under the guise of a neophyte’s exaltation. Not true! To avoid these mistakes we recommend going through the original texts of his work that will build a good relationship with Miclea’s writings and will facilitate the study of the Thomist teachings.
