What's going on?

Thanks for reading and following my work! I've been away from blogging for a while, but I have been busily at work.

I'm continuing to write regularly at New Evangelizers, which I've been cross-posting to my blog. You can find my articles here.

My class in Natural Theology - an outgrowth of my "God from the Ground Up" blogs - has been running now at the Dominican Institute. I'm developing two more follow-on courses for a full semester-long course in natural theology, going from proofs of God all the way to the Catholic Church. You can find my classes at natural-theology.teachable.com. You can find my classes and many more, from great instructors, at the Dominican Institute.

I'm in my second year now as elected President of the Catholic Writers Guild. We provide fellowship, criticism, and education for new and established writers of all genres, of fiction and non-fiction. If you're a writer, illustrator, editor.. or a voracious reader, please check them out.


Finally, I'll be revamping my website and blogs, and I plan to have them consolidated in one more cohesive site -- weaving together the various threads of my work in education (adult and homeschooling), reading and writing, and catechesis.

But what about the usage of the concept? For how long has subjectivity influenced objectivity?
