I go through the main lines of Aquinas’s De Ente argument for the existence of God and show how it can be fortified using contemporary arguments in favor of causal finitism. Aquinas limits himself to arguing that per se causal series need a first member, but with causal finitism in place we can defend the same for per accidens causal series, removing a way out for the critic of the argument.
God, Aquinas, De Ente, causal finitism.
