St. Jerome's University has made its reputation over the years mainly through the excellence of its teaching. However, its contribution to the University of Waterloo and to higher learning in general also takes the form of strong scholarship and original research. Without this on-going work, university teaching at the University would be less rich and meaningful than it is.
Within the Department of Philosophy, some of the research areas include, but are not limited to:
- The philosophy of nature and the subject of punishment in the thought of Thomas Aquinas.
- The Alberti Magni e-corpus, a web-based, electronically searchable database of the works of Albertus Magnus (1200-1280)
- The translation of Albertus Magnus' commentary on Aristotle's Categories
- The research of the topic of friendship in Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592) and Francis Bacon (1561-1626).
- Editing a book on metaphysics in the Aristotelian-Thomistic tradition
- Working on monographs, such as the interpersonal basis of human nature or the concept of the world in Friedrich Schelling's late philosophy.
