The Duhem Society

Recently a comment was left on the blog by one “Jakian Thomist”, and that led me to his blog “The Duhem Society”, the purpose of which is “to study the writing of Pierre Duhem and Stanley L. Jaki, two great Catholic historians of science.”

I think you will benefit from a bit of a look, especially if you have an interest in Newman, who was a (very large) side interest of Fr Jaki. I have had a copy of Jaki’s biography of Newman sitting next to my bed for the last two years or so. Unfortunately, it is rather at the bottom of a stack that has become quite high (N.T. Wright is currently dominating the pile). Perhaps it is time to promote it…
