Jack (John W.) Carlson '65

Jack (John W.) Carlson reports that in December 2011 the University of Notre Dame Press will publish his “Words of Wisdom: A Philosophical Dictionary for the Perennial Tradition.” Containing 1,172 cross-referenced entries, it is the only work of its kind in over 50 years. It will be published in both print and electronic (PDF) formats. A reviewer writes, “A good dictionary is a great thing. ... Students and teachers alike will be grateful to Dr. Carlson for taking up the challenge of John Paul II to appreciate and illuminate the ‘great tradition’ of philosophy.”
