 Father McTeigue gives readers tools for finding and living the truth

SAN FRANCISCO — At times of uncertainty and trials, humans may reflect more on the meaning of life and if absolute truth exists.  Father Robert McTeigue addresses these and many other musings on similar topics in his new book, REAL PHILOSOPHY FOR REAL PEOPLE: TOOLS FOR TRUTHFUL LIVING.

Fr. Robert McTeigue, S.J., is a member of the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus. He has lectured worldwide on philosophy and theology. A member of the National Ethics Committee of the Catholic Medical Association, he is host and producer of the radio show The Catholic Current on the Station of the Cross.

In a world where anyone can claim to have the truth on their side and then spread that “truth” wherever they deem fit, REAL PHILOSOPHY FOR REAL PEOPLE gives specific tools to individuals looking to work through ethics, anthropology and metaphysics in order to determine the truth and how one makes the journey to get there — or somehow takes a very wrong turn on that road.

Through Father McTeigue, classical philosophy finds a contemporary voice, accessible to the layman and engaging to the scholar. REAL PHILOSOPHY FOR REAL PEOPLE provides an answer to those philosophies that prize theory over truth, to any metaphysics that cannot account for itself, to anthropologies that are unworthy of the human person, and to ethical systems that reduce the great dignity and destiny of the human person. As the author insists, “A key test of any philosophy is: Can it be lived?” With Thomas Aquinas, this book teaches not only how to know the truth, but how to love it and to do it.

“A delightful romp through modern idiocies disguised as philosophies versus time-tested principles for building a wise one,” said Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., professor of philosophy at Boston College. “It is full of the most revolutionary, rare and uncommon thing in the world: common sense.”
