Hello, everyone.

I am a mathematician with an amateur interest in philosophy.  For several years now, I've been learning a lot from Feser's posts and from the helpful and knowledgeable commentors that his blog attracts.  I'm excited to see that some of these commentors are starting a free-standing forum here.

My own philosophical outlook, both by nature and on reflection, is atheistic, materialistic, and reductionistic.  In other words, from the A-T standpoint, wrong, wrong, wrong!  So I've always appreciated the patience with which my questions have been answered by the commentors on Feser's blog.  Thanks to them, I have some glimmering of the monumental intellectual power of the A-T ediface.  If I am indeed radically wrong in my worldview, then A-T, among all the systems that I know, seems most likely to be right.  I'm looking forward to learning more about this system here.

There is a beautiful line in Gilson's The Unity of Philosophical Experience: "We may wholly disagree with Hegel, or with Comte, but nobody can read their encyclopedias without finding there an inexhaustable source of partial truths and of acute observations" (pp. 242ff).
