Jeevan Mendonsa, a Jesuit priest, is currently doing a PhD in philosophy at the Gregorian University, Rome. In his dissertation, he will explore the compatibility between the moral philosophy of Alasdair MacIntyre and Darwinian ethics. He worked for six and a half years in Nandurbar district of Maharashtra in the field of elementary education; the work included training bare-foot teachers in innovative and child-friendly teaching methods. He also actively promoted children's literature in tribal villages and made the library a more child-friendly space, given the constraints of rural infrastructure. Firmly convinced about the significance of critical thinking and reasoning in education, he endeavours to promote these abilities wherever possible.
