The life of a philosopher is foremost the life of thinking but it is also the life of imagination that dreams of and investigates pos- sibilities that might not otherwise have been raised. The life of a Christian is the life of Faith, Hope and Charity, and so it both looks to things beyond this world and regards this world with compassion. The two can work together. Faith softens reason, and reason sharpens Faith. Imagination finds new ways to articu- late in concrete circumstances what has belonged to long tradi- tions of thought. These essays cover a wide range of topics either by way of simple reflection on life or in response to issues that arose around the time of their writing. The period of their writing was a varied one. Life looked so stable in the mid-nineties that we contemplated Australia becoming a republic and sought Aborigi- nal reconciliation. It remained uncomplicated at the time of the Olympic Games in 2000 but became troubled by political events and by the terrorist attacks of 2001. The essays respond to the issues of this time. Four essays not published in the Weekly have been added to take note of more recent changes that have taken place in the Church and in our world.
