  • Author(s):
    Greene, Edward Lee, 1843-1915.
    Abstract:

    In addition to botanical specimens, [Edward Lee Greene (August 20, 1843–November 10, 1915)] collected rare books and herbals on pre-Linnean botany. He began building his personal library early in his career as a botanist, and by the time his career was drawing to a close, he felt that his library was “the pioneer among American collections of pre-Linnaean, and rare though important post-Linnaean, books of botany.” He managed to assemble an excellent collection of journals, monograp…

    Alexander Marion Kirsch
    Abstract:

    Since the time of Hooke, 1865 [corr. 1665], the knowledge of the organic cell, that elementary organism or individuality of organic beings, has accumulated to such an extent as to constitute a science in itself, and the time has come that in a curriculum of university studies, this knowledge should not be any longer limited so as to be only treated in a paragraph or even in an introductory chapter on the cell in our textbooks of Zoology or Botany; but it should receive that attention which th…

    Francis Wenninger
    Subject(s):
    Evolution -- Religious aspects -- Catholic Church
    Abstract:

    The purpose of science is to find a complete explanation, by natural law, of the universe. The man of science must carry his investigation of question that comes before him to the very limit. He knows, of course, that anything like a complete explanation will be forever beyond him. But this must not hinder him from pushing his quest as far as he can into unexplored territory. He must discover all the facts; then he may classify and arrange these facts; finally, he may construct a plausible an…

  • Author(s):
    Alasdair MacIntyre
    Abstract:

    Alasdair MacIntyre is one of the few professional philosophers whose writings span both technical analytical philosophy and those general moral or intellectual questions that laymen often suppose to be the province of philosophy but that are seldom discussed within its bounds. The unity of this book—made up both of original and previously published pieces—lies in its attempt to expose this dichotomy and to link beliefs and moral theories with philosophical criticism. The author successively c…

  • Author(s):
    Gilbert C. Meilaender
    Abstract:

    Certain relationships are of profound importance for the moral life. Gilbert C. Meilaender explores some of the tensions which Christian experience discovers in one such relationship, the bond of friendship. These tensions help to explain why friendship was a more important topic in the life and thought of the classical civilizations of Greece and Rome than it has unusually been within Christendom. The bond of friendship (philia) involves special preference; Christian love (agape) is thought …

    John S. Dunne
    Abstract:

    “The holy man of our time, it seems, is not a figure like Gotama or Jesus or Mohammed, a man who could found a world religion, but a figure like Gandhi, a man who passes over by sympathetic understanding from his own religion to other religions and comes back again with new insight to his own. Passing over and coming back, it seems, is the spiritual adventure of our time. It is the adventure I want to undertake and describe in this book.” –from the Preface

  • Author(s):
    David B. Burrell, C.S.C.
    Abstract:

    The death of a friend is a source of pain and grief for anyone. For David B. Burrell, it is also a source of reflection on the role of friendship in our ongoing pursuit of truth. In this small but penetrating book, Burrell offers five essays that explore friendship as the bond that links us to the religious traditions we embrace in our search for truth. Known for his many and lasting contributions to philosophical theology, Burrell here makes a definitive statement for that field while also …

  • Author(s):
    Etienne Gilson
    Abstract:

    In this book (a translation of his well-known work L'esprit de la philosophie medievale), Etienne Gilson undertakes the task of defining the spirit of mediaeval philosophy. Gilson asks whether we can form the concept of a Christian philosophy and whether mediaeval philosophy is not its most adequate historical expression. He maintains that the spirit of mediaeval philosophy is the spirit of Christianity penetrating the Greek tradition, working within it, and drawing out of it a certain …
