Fr Marie-Dominique Philippe, the founder of the Community of St John, wrote the following lines in the first chapter of his book entitled ‘Retracing Reality’: “The search for wisdom has become particularly difficult in our time. The cultural milieu in which contemporary man lives does not favour it. The search for such wisdom is considered useless, senseless nostalgia, and completely outdated. Indeed contemporary man’s cultural milieu is wholly oriented towards the development of science and technology. We consider efficiency above all else and often risk forgetting man in his profound destiny.” Fr Thomas outlines what a realistic philosophy is and draws out some of the issues involved in searching for the truth about man as a person, with an intellect and a will.
