New Irish Philosophical Novel

There has been some recent debate in the Irish media about the role of modern Irish writing particularly criticizing it for not addressing modern Irish paradigms.

Well here at last is a modern Irish philosophical novel - "The Island" - available from as of this week.

This novel ignores the long tradition of Catholic-laden Irish experience and seeks to look forward with confidence in an emerging Irish philosophical voice.

Unlike the spiritual metaphysics of the late John Moriarty, this novel sees the world of the philosophy of science as the basis for a new ontological reality.
