Product Description The Writings of Charles De Koninck, volumes 1 and 2, present the first English editions of collected works of the Catholic Thomist philosopher Charles De Koninck (1906-1965). Ralph McInerny (1929-2010) was the project editor and prepared the excellent translations. Volume 1 contains writings ranging from De Koninck?s 1934 dissertation at the University of Louvain on the philosophy of Sir Arthur Eddington, to two remarkable early essays on indeterminism and the unpublished book ?The Cosmos.? The short essay ?Are the Experimental Sciences Distinct from the Philosophy of Nature?? demonstrates for the first time De Koninck?s distinctive view on the relation between philosophy of nature and the experimental sciences. Volume 1 also includes a comprehensive introductory essay by Leslie Armour outlining the structure and themes of De Koninck's philosophy, and a biographical essay by De Koninck?s son, Thomas. Review ?Volume Two of The Writings of Charles De Koninck reveals a Thomist at home not merely in the deepest questions of natural science and natural philosophy, but also in the highest reaches of ethical and political philosophy, and in the most wonderful realm of revealed theology. De Koninck combines a justified confidence in his wisdom about the highest things with humility and gratitude for the gift of that wisdom. The series edited by Dr. McInerny is taking shape as a recovered treasure of a philosopher who labored to receive, and to pass on, the gift of wisdom.? (David Quackenbush, Thomas Aquinas College) About the Author Charles De Koninck was on the faculty of Québec?s Université de Laval and was director of Laval?s philosophy faculty from 1939 to 1956. He lectured frequently in the United States, as well as in Latin America, Europe, and Canada.
