Also, Dr. DeMarco’s newest book entitled How to Flourish in a Fallen World is now available at Amazon. Here’s a brief description from Amazon:
How to Flourish in a Fallen World, by Donald DeMarco, engages the reader in an understanding of our common human nature and the problems it faces in a culture that actively pursues, to put it in Saint John Paul II’s terms, a freedom of indifference over a freedom for excellence. Dr. DeMarco’s conclusion is a simple one: “We can flourish in a fallen world by taking advantage of the many gifts that are available to us while living within the truth of our being.” In a world of complex problems, it is refreshing to know that such a simple solution is available to us – we merely have to live the truth in love, and we’ll find that we restore by so doing mankind to his proper state.
On behalf of the Dead Philosophers Society, a hearty congratulations to Dr. DeMarco for a well earned and properly deserved recognition.
