In fact, McCool noted that Gilson once argued that any reading of Aquinas through Kantian lenses came either from ‘historical ignorance’ or ‘intellectual confusion’. On the other hand, the Transcendental Thomists adopted what McCool suggested was a ‘more optimistic view’ of reconciling Kant and Thomas. The Transcendental Thomists argue that taking Kant’s method farther than the Critique of Pure Reason leads one to a realist ontology consistent with the writings of Aquinas.
