Philosophizing In Faith (Garrigou-Lagrange)
By Réginald Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P. | Collected and translated by Matthew K. Minerd
Philosophizing in Faith is an expansive collection of essays on epistemology, logic, and moral and political philosophy, as well as critiques of modernism and presentations of the proper relationship between philosophy and theology. Translating twenty of the twenty-one essays into English for the first time and meticulously editing and annotating the texts, Minerd makes abundantly clear the universal value of Garrigou-Lagrange’s thought and invites scholars and students alike to consider its character and claims in their own right and on their own terms.
The fifth volume in the Thomist Tradition book series, Philosophizing in Faith: Essays on the Beginning and End of Wisdom is a genuine act of service to the truth, certain to become an enduring contribution to a right understanding of both philosophy and theology.
