Summary of scientific research
My studies are directed to three fields: human being, metaphysics, and Saint Thomas Aquinas, in strict connection with each other because anthropoloy must be founded in ontology and ultimately in theology: as Vatican Council II observes: ‘S. Thoma praesertim magistro’.

Main publications
The volume Sanctus Thomas de Aquino, Doctor hodiernae humanitatis, edited by Libreria Editrice Vaticana, in the Collana Studi tomistici, 58, presents my list of publications up to 1994. Afterwards – El pensamiento de Santo Tomás para el hombre de hoy: I. El hombre en cuerpo y alma, Valencia. Edicep, 1994; II, El hombre y Dios, Valencia, 2001; III, (in prep.)
