Recent Books and Scholarship by The Rt. Rev. Dr. Craig J. N. de Paulo
A Christian Existential phenomenologist and philosopher of ambiguity, he refers to his scholarly work as "Augustinian phenomenology," which is founded upon existential insights from Augustine and Martin Heidegger's Sein und Zeit methodology. Professor de Paulo is also interested in hermeneutical approaches back to other ancient sources (and especially Christian patristic writers.) with a philosophical focus on ambiguity, confusion, paradox, anxiety, struggle, conversion and restlessness.

Caputo (his former mentor at Villanova), Cardinal Georges Cottier, O.P., Robert Dodaro, O.S.A., Cardinal Avery Dulles, S.J., John Macquarrie, Camille Paglia, Jaroslav Pelikan, Roland J. Teske, S.J. and Tarcisius van Bavel, O.S.A., Professor de Paulo is associated with the current "theological turn in phenomenology" movement, and he is a recognized scholar of Augustine of Hippo and his influence on Western thought and especially on existentialism and phenomenology.
