Gratry in Alsace

Félix Ponteil, Le Père Gratry et l’Alsace, in La Vie en Alsace, février 1933, N° 2., pp. 25 – 32.

While I don’t share the conclusions of Felix Ponteil regarding Gratry’s philosophy, I appreciate the way he situates Gratry in the Alsace context of Bautain and Mlle Humann.

Ponteil’s article is also a good example of the lack of regard for Gratry as a philosopher in many circles and helps explain why he was largely forgotten for so long.
