Week 5: Something as Basic as Being… Is Called into Question

By • Jun 17th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Luke, Research

One of the goals of my honors thesis and therefore also my research over the summer is to show that nothing exists alongside God in His infinity, eternity, and fundament, so to speak. If nothing is as powerful or fundamental to reality as God, and if God is truly the creator of all in definition…

Integration of Collegiate Sports Analytics Update 1

After a few weeks of rest and relaxation, it was now time to start my official work on my research project. For those unaware, the focus of my Monroe research is investigating the adoption of the various uses of sports analytics into varying NCAA athletic programs. Translation: I’ll be looking into whether coaches favor more […]

Week Four: Wrenches Are Thrown

By • Jun 10th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Luke, Research

Today marks the beginning of my fifth week of research, and the past month or so has certainly gone quickly. I am thankful to have the time to be absorbed in such a fascinating study, obscure as it may seem to some. Indeed, the limited amount of work that has been done on the matter,…

Week Three: Overturning Aristotle

By • Jun 3rd, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Luke, Research

This week has been mostly more of the same of week two, which is to say, Palamas and Aquinas contrasted against each other. Palamas is the main focus of my project, but it looks that Aquinas is playing a large role for these two weeks at least. Since I spoke mostly about him last week,…

Week Two: Two Problems from Thomas

By • May 27th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Luke, Research

During my first week of research, I read mostly secondary sources pertaining to Gregory Palamas, whose work is the main focus of my project, and his contemporaries. This was to get a good overall picture of his thought before delving into the specifics, which I began to do in this second week. On the texts…

Week One: Off to a Good Start

By • May 20th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Luke, Research

Going into this first week of research, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. Since my research is for a thesis in the philosophy department, I don’t need to travel or take interviews, much less test with chemicals or plants or something of that sort. My main goal this summer is to read a great…

Introduction to My Project

By • Apr 11th, 2019 • Category: Honors Thesis, Luke, Research

In this honors thesis, I will use the fourteenth-century theologian Gregory Palamas’ distinction between the essence of God and the energies of God to address philosophical issues related to God’s transcendence and immanence. Palamas sought to reconcile the apoptotic tradition of Christian, and, more broadly, theistic, thought with the possibility of mystical experiences of the…

My Textual History, or, How I Became Involved in Research and Started Losing My Hair pt. I

By • Jul 8th, 2008 • Category: A New Introduction to Bibliography, Bible, Colonial Williamsburg, General Technology, Luke, Parnassus, Printing, Research, Shakespeare, Sonnets, William and Mary

My textual history is a complicated affair. I arrived at William and Mary fresh from high school—ready to face college and do something. I knew fairly early on that I wanted to be an English major, so I began asking my freshman adviser—the estimable Adam Potkay—what English major types actually do. I was very concerned […]
