Human Rights

William L. Saunders, Jr.

Everybody knows that human rights are important, and that we must always respect them. What are human rights, though? To answer this question, I will take you back to World War II, a time when brutal fighting filled almost every country in every hemisphere of the world. Throughout the war, many actions were taken that … Continue reading Human Rights

The Principles of Nietzsche’s Philosophy

By Dr. Jeffrey Langan

Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the most influential philosophers of the past 200 years. People wonder what the best entry point is into the study of his thought. Interestingly, Nietzsche himself said that you didn’t need to read his writings in order to understand his basic principles. At one point in his life, he said … Continue reading The Principles of Nietzsche’s Philosophy

Sexual Partners

By Dr. Pat Fagan

I want to discuss the number of sexual partners that one has in a lifetime and its effect on many other aspects of life. Given the sexual revolution, the hookup culture and everything that has happened in recent decades, there’s been a sea change in many aspects of sexuality. The number of sexual partners one has is … Continue reading Sexual Partners

Gratuitous Incivility

By Santo J. Costa

In my book Humanity at Work, I speak of a concept I call “gratuitous incivility.” You see it, unfortunately, in many aspects of our lives; you see it in politics, you see it in the business world, and you see it in how people treat one another and deal with one another. There was a … Continue reading Gratuitous Incivility

Philosophandum in Fide

By Ralph McInerny

For some centuries now it has been the practice of secular philosophers and historians of philosophy to bracket the work of believing philosophers, judging that it cannot count as “real” philosophy, “real’ philosophy being secular philosophy. In this way, the Christian philosopher is excluded by stipulative definition and often a thousand years of thinking is … Continue reading Philosophandum in Fide

Raging In The Dark

By Ralph McInerny

I have recently written a little book called Some Catholic Writers which is due to appear in the months ahead. Considering the influence of the faith on the minds and imaginations of authors reveals how various and unpredictable that influence can be. It occurs to me that one might gather together authors who lost the … Continue reading Raging In The Dark

The Colors of the Shield

By Fulvio Di Blasi

TIC Coat of Arms is a shield because it symbolizes the vocation of intellectuals, to defend the truth against the errors and adversities of ideology and power. The interior of the shield displays four main symbols: from the upper left, five waves, the wing of an angel, an unsheathed double-edged sword, and a tuft of … Continue reading The Colors of the Shield

Learned Ignorance

By Ralph McInerny

Preparing the index for The Logic of Analogy, nearly fifty years ago, was a mindless but highly enjoyable task. Page proofs and separate sheets of paper for each  letter of the alphabet were spread all over the table as I pored over the text and entered words, then page numbers on the sheets. After the … Continue reading Learned Ignorance

Ex Cathedra. Shut Up, He Explained

By Ralph McInerny

It is a nice question whether Orwell’s 1984 or Huxley’s Brave New World was the most prescient depiction of what modern society has become. Better living through chemistry or Big Brother is watching you? The current invocation of “academic freedom” to plead for the staging of homosexual propaganda on Catholic campuses suggests that Orwell was … Continue reading Ex Cathedra. Shut Up, He Explained

De Profundis

By Ralph McInerny

Herman Melville is the most theological of American writers, even more so than his friend Nathaniel Hawthorne. Because Melville enjoyed such great popularity after the appearance of his early South Sea island adventures, it is surprising to find that Moby Dick was a commercial failure. The stock of the author plummeted precipitously, and for the … Continue reading De Profundis
