Thomism has had a continuous history from the 13th century and some think that in this regard it is quite unique. In each time, it experienced different forms and took different approaches, as in twentieth-century there are also transcendental Thomists and existentialist Thomists. However, it took longer until for analytic philosophy and Thomism to have interaction and it did not happen until the attempts by Peter Geach, Elizabeth Anscombe, and Anthony Kenny. Then, in the 1990s, John Haldane, drawing on these works, coined the term "Analytic Thomism". Here I explore this movement by focusing on some of its aspects. First, we will see the historical phases of Thomism. Then, we review the roots of analytic Thomism as we know it now. After looking at some examples of the works done in this tradition, some challenges for analytic Thomism are presented and discussed. At the end, by way of conclusion, a few remarks about “Analytic Islamic philosophy” are discussed.
