Francis P. Canavan, S.J. (1917–2009)
My friend and fellow Fordham alumnus, Kenneth L Grasso, reports that his mentor, Francis P. Canavan, S. J., died on February 26, 2009. Fr. Canavan, a Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Fordham, had a profound influence in shaping my own understanding of political philosophy. If you want to get a feel for Fr. Canavan's work, you can purchase his book, The Pluralist Game, or you can browse it on Google Books here.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon him.
