MEDIA REVIEWS
"A provocative "tour-de-force . . . he showed that MacIntyre's early Christianity, his excursions into Marxism, his neo-Aristotelianism, his Hegelianism and his later Thomism are all parts of the same search for the virtuous community, for the authenticity of theory related to practice."
-Ioan Davies, York University, Canada
