The Charles De Koninck Project
Philosopher Charles De Koninck (1906 - 1965) was one of the leading figures in the Laval or River Forest tradition within 20th century Thomism. (Need a scorecard to keep track of the different strands of Thomism? Go here and here.) De Koninck was the author of several important works on the relationship between the Aristotelian-Thomistic tradition and modern science, as well as important works in political philosophy, Catholic theology, and other topics. The late Ralph McInerny edited a series of De Koninck’s collected works titled The Writings of Charles De Koninck, of which only Volume 1 and Volume 2 appeared before McInerny’s death. Now The Charles De Koninck Project has been inaugurated with the aim of making all of De Koninck’s works available online. Take a look at the website and while you’re there consider donating to this worthy enterprise.
