Breath O’ Fresh Air

, Malcolm A. Kline, Leave a comment

After making the rounds of conferences given by groups such as the Modern Language Association, this correspondent found the seniors’ theses of recent Thomas Aquinas College graduates a refreshing counterpoint.

They include:

  • “The Higher Men: How Ayn Rand’s Ideal Man Falls Short of Happiness”;
  • “Vive la Difference:  The Genius of Gender and the Natural Order”;
  • “Men and Women: Intellectually Complementary for the Sake of Wisdom”;
  • “Those Whom He Called Came Freely:  An Argument That the Doctrine of Predestination Does Not Contradict Man’s Free Will”;
  • “’Until Natural Death’:  A Philosophical Argument Against Euthanasia Based on the Relationship of the Common Good to the Private Good”; and my favorite
  • “A Heart for the Head: On the Obedience a Wife Owes to Her Husband.”

We wish the lads and lasses who came up with these topics all the luck in the world in all their endeavors.
