10th anniversary open thread
While there are still a few days left to September, I should note that this month marks the 10th anniversary of this blog. It was initially started in part to serve as a kind of online supplement to The Last Superstition, which was published around the same time. Of the eleven books I’ve written, co-written, or edited, seven of them (including TLS) have appeared during the last ten years. We’ll see if I can keep up the pace during the next ten years.
Fellow comic book aficionados will have observed that this is also roughly the lifespan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and if TLS was my Iron Man, then perhaps my Infinity War will be my forthcoming book Aristotle’s Revenge: The Metaphysical Foundations of Physical and Biological Science. I am just now putting the finishing touches on it and it should be out by the end of this year or early next year from Editiones Scholasticae. More information to come on that before long.
As with the MCU, there is a plan for the future. In case you are curious, next on the agenda are a book on the immortality of the soul, a book on sexual morality, a book on the truth of the Catholic Faith, and a book on Modernism. In that order, though I reserve the right to shift things around or drop something altogether as circumstances change.
In the meantime, it’s a good occasion for another open thread. You know the rules. Keep it civil, keep it classy, but feel free to discuss any topic you wish.
