Fr. Schall’s Foreward for Leisure: The Basis of Culture

Today is a world of novelty. It revels in new things, no doubt a result of Sarte’s existentialism. Fr. Schall promotes the preeminence of ancient philosophy, something considered by most to be outdated. How can we defend his statement “knowing little or nothing before Machiavelli or Descartes is a formula for philosophical incoherence.” against the culture of novelty and the denigration of the past?

About Fr. Kyle

I am a priest of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. I was born and raised right outside New Orleans. I attended Catholic school my entire educational career. By the time I graduated high school, I had two paths to choose: rockstar or priesthood. I pursued both for awhile but eventually came to the understanding God's will was priesthood and my will was rockstardom. After making that decision, to allow God's will to be mine, I needed a new way to channel my creativity. I began writing as I finished up my formation for priesthood. I still play music, but priestly ministry comes first. My bride: St. Rita of Cascia Parish in Harahan, LA.
