1. ACADEMIC - FR93404.HTM - 'Too Diffident to Define': The Gentleman in Newman's 'The Idea of a University'
Ronald B. Begley
In his celebrated portrait of the intellectual gentleman at the end "Knowledge Viewed in Relation to Religion", Newman shows himself "too diffident to define." Prof. Begley argues that in this portrait Newman follows his own advice to the university preacher addressing himself to "some special danger" or "probable deficiency" or "need" of his hearers: that is, Newman addresses his reader "covertly," not "showing on the surface of his discourse what he is aiming at." Taken from the Winter 1993 issue of "Faith & Reason."

12. Academic - ZLEGALTH.HTM - Catholic Legal Theory
For almost 100 years, secular schools of legal philosophy — especially legal realism and legal positivism — have been dominant within the legal academy and the judiciary. These have led to laws and practices inimical to religious practice and traditional morals. But now, Michael Scaperlanda and a growing number of lawyers and law professors are developing a response to this phenomenon through something called Catholic legal theory. Scaperlanda, who holds the Edwards Family Chair in Law and is associate dean for research at the University of Oklahoma College of Law, explains in this interview with ZENIT. NATURAL LAW REVELATION PERSON
13. Academic - ZCATHSTD.HTM - Catholic Studies Program and a Coming Renaissance
As many Catholic colleges and universities have continued to model themselves after secular institutions, new Catholic colleges have arisen, in response to publication of the apostolic constitution Ex Corde Ecclesiae. An older school, the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota, started a new program in 1992, the "Center for Catholic Studies," to offer students a comprehensive Catholic education shaped by the broad Catholic intellectual tradition. In a recent (March 2003) ZENIT interview, the founder of this program explained its rationale. EDUCATION
14. ACADEMIC - CHAPTRIA.HTM - Chaplains on Trial: The Future of Catholic Ministry on Campus
Rev. C. John McCloskey
In this Catholic Position Paper of September 1993, Rev. McCloskey maintains that "unless there is an energetic push on secular campuses both to catechize and to evangelize we are in danger of losing yet another generation of Catholics who will only be recovered for Christ and His Church at the cost of extraordinary effort and pain. Outside of the family and seminary, the most important work for the future of the Church takes place on the college campus."
15. ACADEMIC - COEDREVI.HTM - Coeducation Revisited for the 21st Century
Rev. C. John McCloskey III, S.T.D.
"There is something radically wrong with the family and the relationship between the sexes in the West as we rapidly approach the third millennium of the Christian era. People and families are behaving very strangely, almost as if they were characters out of Walker Percy's novel, 'Love Among the Ruins', or Don Siegel's film, 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers.'" Fr. McCloskey gives good reasons for this statement taken from his talk presented at the First Panamerican Congress on the Family and Education in Monterey, Mexico on May 23-26, 1994.

20. ACADEMIC - FR94104.HTM - Education: Yes and No
Timothy D. Sullivan
This article grew out of a participation in a college level program intended to acquaint students with the heritage of Western civilisation. Teams made up of members from different departments gave the lectures, usually in their own subject areas but not always. At the same time, the topic of an educational crisis was ongoing, and a crisis in formal education held out the possibility that formal education is no longer an education. Whether the problematic status of education was to be understood of curricula, staff, or students, or some combination of these, was not a prominent topic, and so I thought to distinguish the weight of each, and their relation in the functioning of formal education. Taken from the Spring 1994 issue of "Faith & Reason."
