  • After the untimely demise of Father Kurt Pritzl, O.P., in 2011, John McCarthy was appointed Dean of the School of Philosophy to succeed him. He first joined the faculty in 1990, and was promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in 1996. He is a graduate of St. Michael’s College, the University of Toronto (B.A., 1979), and The Catholic University of America (M.A., 1993; Ph.D., 1989). In recent years, what teaching and research he has been able to do has chiefly been in the area of early modern philosophy. Of longstanding interest to him is the intersection of early modern political philosophy and modern natural science.
