Abstract

John Haldane The greatest institutional contributions to Catholic philosophy in the modern English-speaking world have been made in the United States in the twentieth century. European influences have been strong, particularly through the work of Gilson, Maritain, Pieper, and Simon, but they served principally to stimulate generations of Americans to draw upon and reformulate Catholic philosophical thought, especially but not exclusively Thomism. University presses, such as those of Catholic University of America, Fordham, Georgetown, Loyola, and Marquette, have been important in the dissemination of these ideas; however the primary critical fora of Catholic thought have been journals. In the field of philosophy, narrowly construed, a familiar trio of periodicals spans three quarters of the twentieth century: the Modern Schoolman founded in 1925, New Scholasticism established in 1927 and continued from 1990 as the American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, and the Thomist founded in 1939. (To which might be added, as favoring Catholic thought, two general philosophy journals: the Review of Metaphysics established in 1947 and the International Philosophical Quarterly founded in 1961.) 3:4 fall 2000 thomistic ethics in america Since these periodicals were established, the range of philosophical problems and approaches has widened.
