From the desk of Stephen Little, Acquisitions Editor:
Dear friends and colleagues,
It’s with mixed feelings that I write this in the wake of the canceling of the 2020 American Catholic Philosophical Association annual meeting. On the one hand, I've always enjoyed attending conferences in person on behalf of the UND Press, both for the intellectual richness and for the collegial fellowship that I find there. On the other hand, I applaud the prudence and decisiveness of the conference organizers for making the right call and helping to preserve our health and wellbeing during this time of risk. Hopefully we will all see each other again in St. Louis next year!
This year, I’m excited to present Elisabeth Lasch-Quinn’s Ars Vitae: The Fate of Inwardness and the Return of the Ancient Arts of Living, in which the author explores how a renewed turn to ancient philosophy can provide an answer to the material consumerism prevalent today. In Jason Eberl’s The Nature of Human Persons: Metaphysics and Bioethics, the renowned ethicist reveals the metaphysical assumptions that underlie bioethics and their consequences in the world of healthcare. Niki Clements critiques Foucault’s view of St. John Cassian in her book Sites of the Ascetic Self: John Cassian and Christian Ethical Formation, constructing an alternative concept of ethics and subjectivity. And Ryan Duns, S.J., answers Charles Taylor’s concerns for the secular age by appealing to William Desmond’s metaxology in Spiritual Exercises for a Secular Age: Desmond and the Quest for God. Space does not permit me to list all of the excellent volumes in our philosophy catalogue, so I hope you will explore these treasures further on your own!
If you are working on a project that you think might be of interest to us, I encourage you to drop me a line at email@example.com. I particularly welcome projects in bioethics and ressourcement or postmodern Catholic philosophy.
Stay healthy, my friends!
