Newman, MacIntyre, Aristotle, and Tradition in ANAMNESISBy Peter Daniel Haworth for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC
Those interested in J.H. Newman, Aristotle, and traditional theory will enjoy the new ANAMNESIS essay, “J.H. Newman and the Aristotelian Structure of Traditions.” In this fine piece, Professor Dwight Lindley III, demonstrates Cardinal John Henry Newman’s debt to Aristotle in developing his “epistemology of tradition.” Those who enjoy Newman, the famed Anglican convert to Roman Catholicism, and/or who are interested in the foundations of traditionalist theory, will find great value here. As a bonus, Lindley also shows the influence of Newman’s Aristotelian traditionalism on the work of Alasdair MacIntyre.
