    Subject(s):
    Virtue, Virtues, Ethics
    Abstract:

    When After Virtue first appeared in 1981, it was recognized as a significant and potentially controversial critique of contemporary moral philosophy.

Now, twenty-five years later, the University of Notre Dame Press is pleased to rel…

    Gregory Mellema
    Subject(s):
    Responsibility, Accomplices
    Abstract:

    In Complicity and Moral Accountability, Gregory Mellema presents a philosophical approach to the moral issues involved in complicity. Starting with a taxonomy of Thomas Aquinas, according to whom there are nine ways for one to become complicit in the wrongdoing of another, Mellema analyzes each kind of complicity and examines the moral status of someone complicit in each of these ways. Mellema’s central argument is that one must perform a contributing action to qualify as an accomplice, a…

    Education, Humanistic--United States, Education, Higher--United States, Universities and colleges--United States--Administration
    Abstract:

    In Realizing the Distinctive University: Vision and Values, Strategy and Culture, Mark William Roche changes the terms of the debate about American higher education. A former dean of the College of Arts and Letters at the University of Notre Dame, Roche argues for the importance of an institutional vision, not simply a brand, and while he extols the value of entrepreneurship, he defines it in contrast to the corporate drive toward commercialization and demands for business management models…

  • Author(s):
    W. Norris Clarke, S.J.
    Subject(s):
    Thomists, Metaphysics
    Abstract:

    When it is taught today, metaphysics is often presented as a fragmented view of philosophy that ignores the fundamental issues of its classical precedents. Eschewing these postmodern approaches, W. Norris Clarke finds an integrated vision of reality in the wisdom of Aquinas and here offers a contemporary version of systematic metaphysics in the Thomistic tradition. The One and the Many presents metaphysics as an integrated whole which draws on Aquinas’ themes, structure, and insight witho…
