This collection of papers, first published in 1992, grew out of a concern for the perduring nature of the thought of John Henry Cardinal Newman. Although Cardinal Newman died over one hundred years ago, his influence on today’s thinking is still strong. Newman put forward an ideal of society and life which has a recognizable relation to the lasting possibilities open to humankind. The editors and contributors of this volume have been brought together by a common interest in a man for whom the continual search for truth is paramount.
