I am glad to inform you ...

I am pleased to welcome a new contributor to this blog, Angelo Bottone. Angelo is an associate lecturer at the School of Arts of the Dublin Business School, where he teaches Introduction to Philosophy, Critical Thinking, Theories of Knowledge and Philosophy of Science. He holds a PhD in philosophy at University College Dublin. He has published three books on John Henry Newman and several articles on Paul Ricoeur, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Multiculturalism, and Philosophy of Religion. He also translated Newman’s The Idea of a University into Italian. He blogs at botblog and is, from time immemorial, a good friend of WRH.

He will keep us informed and up-to-date on philosophical, religious and cultural issues. What will his first post here be about? Well, I don’t pretend to be a prophet, but something tells me that it will be about Germany’s foremost philosopher and critical theorist Jürgen Habermas, who received the Ulysses Medal from University College Dublin last week...
