Word is circulating that radical theologian D. G. Leahy passed away yesterday. He is probably best known to AUFS readers as someone whose thought has been enormously influential on Thomas Altizer, just as Altizer’s writings deeply influenced Leahy.
His dense books include Novitas Mundi, Foundation, and Faith & Philosophy. He continued to write after these works, including two recent books Beyond Sovereignty and The Cube Unlike All Others. His website was updated with new material as recently as March, 2014. (His website used to have a great essay on gender, which seems to have been taken down, and may be part of one of the new books.) He founded the New York Philosophy Corporation, where he taught courses.
I never met Leahy, but I had a few e-mail exchanges with him regarding my dissertation as I was finalizing it back in 2008.
