“The question that, originally, had motivated my graduate studies in the 1960s—Does God exist?—has not been answered—nor has it been rescinded.
Rather, it has receded into a broader acceptance that life’s bigger questions may not succumb to answers that are singular, but that conversing within a plurality of perspectives can help a person navigate the questions.”
— Dr. Leonard O’Brian
Dr. O’Brian is the author of numerous philosophical essays and poems. His book, Journeys of Janus: Explorations in Irish Philosophy, examines the works of five Irish philosophers.
