Well, I'm no ideologue, but I don't think I'm postmodern, either. Dave suggests, given my fondness for Thomism, that I am perhaps pre-modern. That sounds about right. So I guess I agree with Bryan's new friend that "we need ... to keep our minds open not just to new ideas, but new ways of knowing in general." Only I would add that we might want to consider some old ways as well, especially the medieval ways.
