The utility of Philosophy

Ignatius Insight interviews Stanley Grove, a Catholic Neo-Scholastic physicist at Wyoming Catholic College, about philosophy in general, and Hawkings' most recent book in particular. Two LOL quotes:

If medieval man was wrong to anchor his ontological significance to his perception of being at the center of the world, how much more foolish are the moderns who base their claims of human insignificance on our being nowhere in particular?


Professor Hawking’s recent effusions are so wanting in insight that one suspects a mind coming undone.

The whole thing is worth a read.
