about

From 1968 until his death in 2003, Gerald Hanratty was professor of philosophy at University College Dublin. In this volume to his memory, Fran O'Rourke has assembled twenty-six essays reflecting Hanratty's broad philosophical interests, dealing with central questions of human existence and the ultimate meaning of the universe. Whether engaged in historical investigations into Gnosticism or the Enlightenment, Hanratty was concerned with fundamental themes in the philosophy of religion and philosophical anthropology.

Human Destinies brings together a wide range of approaches to central questions of human nature and destiny. Included are historical studies of classical thinkers of the ancient and medieval periods (Aristotle, Plotinus, Augustine, Aquinas) and of modern authors (Kant, Husserl, Heidegger, Marcel, Adorno, Derrida, Plantinga, Scruton).
 
"This volume offers a significant contribution to the various fields within philosophy addressed by its authors. Many of the essays have an intrinsic contemporary appeal to scholars and intellectuals concerned with matters touching on both philosophical and theological issues of significance." —Glenn Hughes, St. Mary's University, San Antonio

Editorial Reviews

“What is perhaps most compelling about the volume is that Human Destinies presents so many potentially competitive frameworks and approaches to investigating human reality, and highlights the significant way in which our contemporary discourse still draws so heavily from classical, medieval, and Enlightenment sources. The wide variety of topics and the depth of these investigations make very evident the richness of human being and this world, and indicate possibilities for continued investigation.” —Augustinian Studies
