Polo's Challenge to Biologists in his Introduction to Philosophy

Recently, I published an review of Leonardo Polo's 'Introduction to Philosophy' in the Journal of Polian Studies. In it, I highlight the challenge Polo's thinking poses to biologists, even in this introductory work. Polo is a 'systemic thinker' who has thought through very fundamental concepts that will prove very useful now that the study of the Human Genome and other 'omes' is proving just how interrelated everything is in an organism.

Interesting website on John Henry Newman

Paul Shrimpton has recently written a book about John Henry Newman, entitled,  "The making of men: the Idea and reality of Newman’s university in Oxford and Dublin" (Gracewing, 2014).

He has now published some of the material in this book on a website, which can be browsed for specific themes of interest. One topic mentioned there, of special interest to me is the one on the compatibility of faith and reason. But there are many others worth exploring.

The homepage of this website can be found here.
