The process of obtaining the thirteen academic propositions, able to be defened in academic debate, is hereby explained.

The analytic section will be limited to a review of literature on Evolutionism. Heuristic, or discovery, will be a separate section, although analytic, to determine problems that arose concerning Evolutionism in the survey of literature. The analytic survey of literature will review 120 twentieth-century Neo-Scholastics to determine their positions on Evolutionism. All of the subjects of this survey would have had training in scholastic thought. Not all of the subjects of the survey became professional philosophers. Not all of the subjects of the survey wrote books specifically on Evolutionism, or directly on Neo-Scholastic philosophy. Nevertheless, the survey should show how those trained in a Neo-Scholastic manner would approach the modern world, with a problem like Evolutionism, a contemporary reality and an object of great interest.

The Survey of Literature
wil treat Neo-Scholastic views gathered into areas:
 
Gregorian University, Rome
Other Roman Academies
France
Germany
Ireland
Italy
North America
Poland
South America
Spain
The Vatican
 

The synthetic section of this project will be limited by the preparation of an academic course on Evolutionism, the philosophy of evolution. Each of the thirteen theses will be stated, given a philosophical background, then philosophically proved to the extent possible, and critiqued as to certitude. Every attempt will be made to prepare an academic course on Evolutionism following the lead of twentieth-century Neo-Scholastics.
