    What Newman Can Give Catholic Philosophers Today.John F. Crosby - 2020 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 94 (1):5-26.
    In this article I explain various points of contact between Newman and the Catholic philosophical tradition. I begin with Newman’s personalism as it is found in the Grammar of Assent, especially in the distinction between notional and real assent, and in the distinction between formal and informal inference. Then I proceed to Newman’s personalism as it is found in his teaching on conscience and on doctrinal development. I then consider Newman as proto-phenomenologist and also as an Augustinian thinker. Finally, I (...)

  4. Doubts About the Privation Theory That Will Not Go Away: Response to Patrick Lee.John F. Crosby - 2007 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 81 (3):489-505.
    Towards the end of his response to me, Lee presents an argument for the necessity of interpreting all evil as privation. I counter this argument by showingthat it works only for what I call “formal” good and evil, but not for what I call “contentful” good and evil. In fact, evil that is “contentful” presents a challenge tothe privation theory that I had not discussed in my article. I then proceed, in the second part of my response, to revisit the (...)

  5. Is All Evil Really Only Privation?John F. Crosby - 2001 - Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 75:197-209.
    It is proposed to test the privation theory of evil by examining three kinds of evil: (1) the evil of the complete destruction of some good (as distinct from the wounding of that good); (2) the evil of physical pain; and (3) certain forms of moral evil in which the evildoer is hostile to some good. It is shown that in none of these cases does evil seem to fit the privation scheme, and that in the second and third case (...)

    The Individuality of Human Persons: A Study in the Ethical Personalism of Max Scheler.John F. Crosby - 1998 - Review of Metaphysics 52 (1):21-50.
    In his deep and significant study of the thought of Max Scheler, Hans Urs von Balthasar writes that “the realm of the personal was Scheler’s innermost concern, more important to him than anything else, the sanctuary of his thought.” This is why Scheler again and again aligned himself with personalism in philosophy, as we can see from the introduction to his major work, Formalism in Ethics.

    On the Difference Between the Cosmological and the Personalist Understanding of the Human Being.John F. Crosby - 2019 - Quaestiones Disputatae 9 (2):112-125.
    In this essay, I try to advance the reception of Karol Wojtyła’s seminal essay “Subjectivity and the Irreducible in Man.” In particular I try to understand and to think through the distinction that he makes between the “personalist” and the “cosmological” image of man. I unpack Wojtyła’s concept of subjectivity, which underlies all that he says about the personalist image of man. I give particular attention to all that he says about the unity formed by the two images. I then (...)

    The Personhood of the Human Embryo.John F. Crosby - 1993 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 18 (4):399-417.
    My interlocutor is anyone who denies peisonhood to the embryo on the grounds that a human person can exist only in conscious activity and that in the absence of consciousness a person cannot exist at all. I probe personal consciousness to the point at which the distinction between the being and the consciousness of the human person appears, and argue on the basis of this distinction that the being of a person can exist in the absence of any consciousness. I (...)

    Person and Obligation: Critical Reflections on the Anti-Authoritarian Strain in Scheler’s Personalism.John F. Crosby - 2005 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 79 (1):91-119.
    In the course of his polemic against Kant’s moral philosophy, Scheler was led to depreciate moral obligation and its place in the existence of persons. This depreciation is part of a larger anti-authoritarian strain in his personalism. I attempt to retrieve certain truths about moral obligation that tend to get lost in Scheler: moral obligation is not merely “medicinal” but has a place at the highest levels of moral life; the freedom of persons is lived in an incomparable way in (...)

    Developing Dietrich von Hildebrand’s Personalism.John F. Crosby - 2017 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 91 (4):687-702.
    I explore the personalism embedded in von Hildebrand’s moral philosophy, and then I explore the personalism in his later account of love. I claim that his personalism was significantly developed in his later work, and that it can be still further developed by us. I begin by explaining what Hildebrandian value-response is, and then I proceed to show how he subsequently qualified this foundational concept, first in his Ethics but especially in his late work, The Nature of Love, and here (...)

    A “Primer of Infidelity” Based on Newman? A Study of Newman’s Rhetorical Strategy.John F. Crosby - 2011 - Newman Studies Journal 8 (1):6-19.
    Newman often argued like this in debate: “you do not accept this claim of mine because you think that it is exposed to certain objections; but this is unreasonable of you, because you make this other claim which is also, if you think it through, equally exposed to the same kind of objections; therefore, you should either withdraw your objections against me, or else give up that claim that you have been making.” Some contemporaries of Newman thought that he unwittingly (...)

    The New Jacobinism: Can Democracy Survive?John F. Crosby - 1992 - Review of Metaphysics 45 (4):881-883.
    Ryn restates and develops certain themes of conservative political philosophy in the tradition of Edmund Burke. His essay centers around a distinction between plebiscitary democracy and constitutional democracy: the "new Jacobinism" is the broad movement of thought, strenuously opposed by Ryn, which has almost succeeded in making the former type of democracy prevail over the latter. Ryn sees the origin of constitutional democracy in a fundamental ethical stance. He argues that our first moral duties and responsibilities are to those with (...)

    The Personalism of John Henry Newman as Interpreted Through the Personalism of Karol Wojtyla.John F. Crosby - 2016 - Newman Studies Journal 13 (2):24-39.
    I use concepts of Karol Wojtyla’s personalism, especially the concept of subjectivity, to explain Newman’s personalism. There is a “turn to the subject” in Wojtyla, and there is a similar “turn to the subject” in Newman; and they explain each other. Thus Newman’s distinction between the theological intellect and the religious imagination, and his particular concern with the latter, is shown to be an expression of his personalism. I try not only to throw new light on Newman’s personalism, but also (...)

    Toward a Gender Inclusive Definition of Marriage.John F. Crosby - 2011 - Essays in the Philosophy of Humanism 19 (2):99-104.
    My purpose in this paper is to set forth a case for inclusion, without any restriction whatsoever, of gays and lesbians in the legal definition of marriage within the various jurisdictions within the United States of America. Historical and cross cultural definitions of marriage are usually based on two basic premises or components, structure and function. Structural definitions of marriage, with which most people and jurisdictions identify, are based on exclusion and inclusion, i.e. on who is eligible for inclusion and (...)
