Lawrence Dewan, OP (1932-2015)

Fr. Lawrence Dewan died last week of pancreatic cancer. He taught philosophy at Dominican University College until this past December. His philosophical work was always excellent. Not much of it can be found easily online, but this website has a few samples of it, including his criticism of the River Forest school of Thomism and "The Importance of Substance", in which he argues that the problems of the Pre-Socratics are always with us.
