Discovering Maurice Blondel

Over at Commonweal, Santiago Ramos has a review of a new biography, the first in English, of Maurice Blondel. I have not read the biography yet, but Ramos's fine essay makes me want to. As he rightly argues, the relative obscurity of Blondel in American circles is a thing to be regretted, so Ramos' essay and the new biography will hopefully begin bringing him to light.
