“Merton on Refusal and Acceptance: Marxist Thought and the Role of Dialectic”

David Golemboski is a lobbyist for NETWORK: A National Catholic Social Justice Lobby. A 2009 graduate of Harvard Divinity School, he lives in Washington, D.C.

He’s presenting a paper titled, “Merton on Refusal and Acceptance: Marxist Thought and the Role of Dialectic.”

“Particularly in his later writings, Merton embraced an attitude of dialogue with respect to Marxism.  This paper will examine Merton’s critical assessment of Marxist thought, focusing on the role of dialectic as a hermeneutical tool for the contemporary Christian vis-à-vis the world,” Golemboski says.
