Truth and Responsibility

A Personalist Reading of Newman
  • By Jan Klos
Product Description
This book goes beyond a simple study of Newman's thought and work and seeks to apply his deductions to modern value conflicts. Although it will be of particular relevance to academic readers with some prior knowledge of Newman's works, it may also be of wider interest to students of history, philosophy, theology and spirituality. More generally, its unusual focus on Newman's epistemology and philosophical deductions, and how these relate to present-day dilemmas, should also attract interest from his many non-academic followers and devotees.

"The main value of this work lies in its original approach to Newman from a Polish Personalist perspective, and this (rather than as another amorphous study of Newman) could give it novelty value and attract real interest from Newman scholars and experts."
-Jonathan Luxmoore, Oxford-based writer and Church historian

"How do we evaluate a human life, our own life? Beginning with John Henry Newman's defence of his life, Jan Klos in this volume sensitively explores from a personalist perspective how all our lives involve struggle with commitment, responsibility, and truth. In its emphasis on the narrative structure of human lives, the book makes a valuable contribution not just to the philosophy of personalism but to social theory overall."
-Douglas Porpora, Professor of Sociology, Drexel University
