Yes, a Republican college professor! And one who is uniquely qualified to address the hot button topic of “identity politics.” Professor Downey has taught philosophy at Saint Mary’s College for the last 23 years, specializing in ethics, political philosophy and foundational theology. He received his Ph.D. in Theology from Boston College, his Master of Theological Studies from Harvard University and his B.A. in Philosophy from Pitzer College (one of the Claremont Colleges).
His published books are:
Serious Comedy: The Philosophical and Theological Significance of Tragic and Comic Writing in the Western Tradition, Lexington Books, 2001

Professor Downey will be available to autograph purchased copies of Desperately Wicked, which receives a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon. One reviewer wrote:
“A fantastic book that will challenge the way that you view philosophical and religious thought in the West. Thank Patrick Downey for writing such a well thought out book. Cannot recommend this book enough.”
