I’ve been reading two chapters in Thomas Bokenkotter’s book, Church and Revolution: Catholics in the Struggle for Democracy and Social Justice. They cover (Ch. 10 &11) Jacques Maritain and Emmanuel Mounier. I believe I’ve mentioned Mounier before in connection with Dorothy Day, Peter Maurin and Personalism. These chapters set personalism in its French context in the periods surrounding WWII. My interest in Maritain is finally piqued. I’ll have to go back and dig up those books of his I’ve had buried somewhere. If anyone has a recommendation of where you’d begin, drop me a comment. The Maritain Center at the University of Notre Dame has a collection of his works online.
