Contradisciplinary #1: A Conversation About Sainthood With Sherwin Siy


Dear readers,

In an attempt to realize, in fact, what I’ve been discussing in theory — namely, using blogging to foster a series of dialogues about current intellectual problems and issues — I happily agreed to Sherwin Siy’s idea of a series of roundtable discussions. We’re calling it “Contradisciplinary,” because we want these conversations to be inclusive and accessible.

Here’s Contradisciplinary: 1! We’re discussing sainthood, morality, and everyday life; the articles up for discussion are Larissa McFarquhar’s interview, which you can read here, and Susan Wolf’s “Moral Saints,” available as a PDF here.
