Indeed, on March 7, 1277, the Archbishop of Paris formally condemned a list of sentences, some of them close to what Aquinas himself had allegedly or really taught.

In the late 19th century some English philosophers absorbed German idealism (the name given to the work of Kant and his followers) and became critics of empiricism. The moral virtues, which, generally speaking, consist of following the mean, are acquired by habituation and thereby become second nature. Together they have coedited Interpretation and Literature in Early Medieval China, also published by SUNY Press. In the world of sense we find there is an order of efficient causes.
