Go here for an online version of the latest edition of Fr. Joseph Gredt's most famous work:
Elementa philosophiae Aristotelico-Thomisticae vol. 1 (logica & philosophia naturalis) and vol. 2 (metaphysica, theologia naturalis, ethica).
John Deely calls Joseph Gredt a "learned Benedictine philosopher-scientist," and he was a classmate of Fr. Garrigou-Lagrange. Here is his major work:
There's a "full screen" option, and you can even download a PDF if you register for free with

Another manual-style series similar to Gredt's is Édouard Hugon's:
Cursus Philosophiæ Thomisticæ I (PDF)
Cursus Philosophiæ Thomisticæ II (PDF)
Cursus Philosophiæ Thomisticæ III (PDF)

I was wondering if anyone here has read either of these works. They are included in Fr. Cekada's seminary curriculum for Most Holy Trinity Seminary, Warren, MI. Which is better, Gredt or Hugon? Thanks
