RIP, Kurt Pritzl of Catholic University of America

The Rev. Dr. Kurt J. Pritzl, O.P., Associate Professor and Dean of the School of Philosophy, died at about 9:45 p.m. on Monday, February 21, owing to complications from the cancer diagnosed almost three years ago.
Father Pritzl was a great friend to many of us in the Center and an adviser to the Center from its earliest days.  He participated in our events frequently and came to our aid on a number of occasions when his advice and assistance were crucial the the success of our endeavors.   He has played a vital role in the world of Catholic philosophy for over two decades, shaping the School of Philosophy at the Catholic University of America, playing a leading role in the training of the next generation of Catholic philosophers, and working effectively in the movement to reinvigorate Thomism in philosophy.  He was a model of the Catholic intellectual.  He will be sorely missed by all of us.  You may read the memorial notice at CUA here: http://philosophy.cua.edu/

Requiescat in pace.
