MEDIA REVIEWS
The Catholic Philosophy Anthology not only provides a useful summary of a long and complex tradition of Catholic reflections on the nature and role of philosophy but also offers a very helpful summary of American Catholic philosophy. The editors' introductions to each of the texts are both informative and engaging. The anthology will be especially valuable for undergraduates who are seeking a comprehensive understanding of the diverse and wide tradition of Catholic philosophical thought. -- Don J. Briel, Koch Chair in Catholic Studies, University of St. Thomas
Professors Gensler and Swindal have made a judicious selection of texts that are classics in Catholic philosophy. Their introductions make this book useful for private study and in the classroom. -- Francis Cardinal George, OMI, Archbishop of Chicago
Editors Gensler and Swindal have done everyone a service with this novel idea of a collection that gathers the best of the Catholic philosophical tradition from the early Patristic authors right up to the latest work done by Catholics working in both the analytic and continental traditions. The selections are both judicious and comprehensive and prefaced by a very helpful analysis of the very idea of a Catholic philosophy. An impressive achievement. -- John D. Caputo, Syracuse University
Philosophizing about issues that have a bearing on matters of faith has been part of the Catholic tradition throughout its history. But it has heretofore been difficult to find a convenient scenic outlook from which to get something of a synoptic overview of the whole readily diversified terrain. In filling this gap the The Sheed & Ward Anthology of Catholic Philosophy meets a real need. The editors deserve our congratulations for their thoughtful labors in producing the panorama of this fascinating and well-constructed anthology. -- Nicholas Rescher
