This book explores the metaphysical underpinnings of theories of human nature, personhood, and the self. The coverage of the work is broad in scope, moving from the Pre-Socratics to Postmodernism, critically assessing what transpired during the intervening 2500 year period, with a special focus on the contributions of the Aristotelian/Thomistic tradition of inquiry. The work is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of readers, from beginners to more advanced students.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Readers undeterred by fears of "foundationalism" will appreciate Torchia's study as a hearty meal in a day when so many offerings are thin and unsatisfying. . . . Exploring Personhood is modestly offered as an "alternative account." It is an account that deserves attention, especially by those disinclined to examine it. * Theological Studies, September 1, 2009 *
Exploring Personhood is much more than an introductory text. It argues for the Thomistic view of the human person in our world of seemingly irreconcilable pluralism in philosophy through a sweeping survey of the history of Western philosophy from the Presocratics to Postmodernism. -- Roland Teske, S.J., Marquette University
