Excerpt


One of the great Catholic philosophers of our day reflects on the way language has been abused so that, instead of being a means of communicating the truth and entering more deeply into it, and of the acquisition of wisdom, it is being used to control people and manipulate them to achieve practical ends.Reality becomes intelligible through words. Man speaks so that through naming things, what is real may become intelligible.

Interview, Excerpt


In this study of the power of beauty, Fr. Thomas Dubay explores the reasons why all of the most eminent physicists of the twentieth century agree that beauty is the primary standard for scientific truth. Likewise, the best of contemporary theologians are also exploring with renewed vigor the aesthetic dimensions of divine revelation. Thus it is that Fr. Dubay seeks to bring to light this unique relationship between beauty and truth.

Since its publication almost 150 years ago, this book has had an extraordinary influence on the shaping and goals of higher education. The issues that John Henry Newman raised--the place of religion and moral values in the university setting, the competing claims of liberal and professional education, the character of the academic community, the cultural role of literature, the relation of religion and science--have provoked discussion from Newman's time to our own. This edition includes the full text of the original 1852 publication and four selections from the subsequently added "University Subjects," together with five essays by leading scholars that explore the background and the present-day relevance of Newman's themes.
