Fr. Stanley L. Jaki Biography


    Stanley Ladislas Jaki, a Hungarian-born Catholic priest of the Benedictine Order, was Distinguished University Professor at Seton Hall University, South Orange, New Jersey. With doctorates in theology and physics, for over forty years he specialized in the history and philosophy of science. The author of over fifty books and over three hundred and fifty articles, he served as Gifford Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh and as Fremantle Lecturer at Balliol College, Oxford. He lectured at major universities in the United States, Europe, and Australia. He was an honorary member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, membre correspondant of the Académie Nationale des Sciences, Belles-Lettres et Arts of Bordeaux, and the recipient of the Lecomte du Noüy Prize for 1970 and of the Templeton Prize for 1987.

    In addition, he founded the Real View Books publishing house, whose Reprint Series brings back in print books that are significant to the understanding and defense of Christian doctrine and culture. Each of these books has a long and instructive introduction by Father Jaki. A good number of books of Father Jaki on Science and Religion, and on Theology are also printed by Real View Books, and are available on this site.

    In 2002 Father Jaki published his "intellectual autobiography," A Mind's Matter which is now available through Real View Books. Another booklet with some autobiographical material has been published by Father Jaki in 2005: Fifty Years of Learning The second edition (July 2009) of a book about Stanley Jaki by Paul Haffner, Creation and Scientific Creativity: A Study in the Thought of S.L. Jaki is also available through Real View Books. The reader will find in this book the first systematic treatment of those ideas in Father Jaki's more than four-decade-long studies that earned him the highest forms of recognition.

    A complete list of Father Jaki's publications is maintained online and can be found here.
