A piece that I wrote defending my choice as a philosopher in receiving the Bishop's mandatum just came out with New Oxford Review. Its called, "An Autonomous Philosopher & the Mandatum." It was a fun piece to write and I've had some interesting and encouraging feedback on it.
Also, I had the great opportunity and enjoyment of reviewing Ed Feser's new book, Scholastic Metaphysics: A Contemporary Introduction for Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews.
BTW, I'm hoping to have a new blog post soon.
