  • Thomistic Evolution: A Catholic Approach to Understanding Evolution in the Light of Faith

    Evolutionary theory has raised numerous disputed questions among Catholics and other Christians concerning the relationship between faith and reason and between religion and science. Thomistic Evolution shows that the Thomistic intellectual tradition, grounded in the philosophical and theological synthesis of St. Thomas Aquinas, provides insightful and compelling responses to these questions. Unfortunately, the Thomistic responses to these disputed questions in science and religion are neither well known nor well understood. This new book, along with its companion website, www.thomisticevolution.org, seeks to remedy this.

  • The Idea of a University

    In The Idea of a University, Blessed John Henry Newman champions a “discipline of mind” that enables its possessor to distinguish essence from accident, means from end, and good from evil. These habits are now all too rare. And that is part of our present poverty, for the person educated according to Newman’s prescription gains the “clear, calm, accurate vision” that is a necessary condition for reliable judgment and the exercise of true freedom.

  • Man Virtues: What the Hell Am I Doing with My Life?

    Robert P. Lockwood (you can call him Bob) has asked the same question you’ve asked dozens of times:

    “What the hell am I doing with my life?”

    Like you, he has wondered why he does what he does, and why it can be so hard to be the person he wants to be. In the end, it’s about wanting happiness. Not three-beer happiness, I-got-a-raise happiness, or the-Steelers-made-the-playoffs happiness, but that quiet contentment that comes from living a good life.
