The Practices of Catholic Intellectual Tradition

Main Article Content

Bernard Brady


In this paper, the author focuses on one aspect of Catholic Intellectual Tradition, namely, how it manifests in practice. Focusing on five such practices — responsiveness to other traditions within Catholicism, recognition of wisdom and truth that may be found in other cultures, the search for understanding of relationships within reality, promotion of personal transformation in the service of the common good, and the centrality of reflection and contemplation — he argues that Catholic colleges and universities ought to nurture and reflect these practices throughout the whole of their work.
