The Catholic nature of a university
Dick Liddy, in his paper yesterday at the Lonergan Workshop, was asking about what makes a university Catholic. The US catholics have been struggling with this question for a long while now; perhaps we in India - even though we don't really have a university culture - should be asking ourselves the same question. At any rate, Liddy's suggestions were interesting: what makes a university Catholic is that it deals with questions dealing with - but not exclusive to - the Catholic tradition.
