What Wonderful News!

An anonymous donor has given $2.5 million to endow a chair at the School of Philosophy at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. I am a graduate of this School, and while I may be ambivalent about Catholic University in general, I am delighted that someone is willing to devote his or her substantial resources to one of the most valuable programs at CUA. Thomistic metaphysics is one of the glories of mankind’s intellectual history, and CUA’s School of Philosophy is dedicated to advancing our understanding and appreciation of it. Good for them!
