Bl. Ramon Llull.

SAINT OF THE DAY is the Blessed Ramon Llull. Catalan poet, philosopher, novelist and soldier. More here, here and here

Recently found out that I've passed all my exams, so that's nice.

Just a little note to record the retirement (simultaneously) of several men who have collectively taught me a great deal of, and about, philosophy. In particular the man who has taught me everything I know of German Idealism.

Professor Sir Stuart Hampshire, whose 'debonair English rationality enabled him to carry off extraordinary diplomatic feats' has passed on. There are obituaries here, and there, and here too.

Ok, my apologies for not posting for so long, my only excuse is that I had exams and other things to take care of.

Anyway, saint of the day is St. Bron, who did much to improve the standard of monastic thought and writing and was a disciple of the great St. Patrick.

More regular posts from now onwards, seeing as I'm freer than I was earlier on.

I'm keeping an eye out on:
The Lakers V Pistons, England V france (allez le bleus!), the various works of Peter Van Inwagen (for whom my idolatry knows no bounds), and fully intend to review my Italian this summer.
