What HAPPENED to the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH? WHAT NOW?
is a radical criticism of the reforms after the Second Vatican Council. The book traces the history of the church from 1945 to 1975. In that period all of the main problems arose that still divide the church. Radical reform requires a change of language. The term "hierarchy" is not a name for the bishops; it is a pattern of authority in an organization. The main hierarchy in the Roman Catholic Church is the two class strucure of clergy and laity. No reform can succeed without eliminating this division. The book proposes a way to
eliminate the clerical class while spreading priesthood to all baptized members. The term "laity" would disappear along with "clergy".

America in the United States and the United States in America is a unique study of the relation between the nation of the United States and the continent and dream of America. The result is a different way of looking at the history and present problems of the United States. The way we speak influences the way we think. America can be a valuable idea of what the United State has to strive for, namely, to be a place of liberty and justice for all. But the regular identification of the country with America leads to a cover up of the obvious problems within the United States and missteps in its foreign policy. 2018

The Act of Teaching: Reflections on a Basic Human Act does not assume that teaching occurs mainly in schools. The book compares two philosophical traditions. In the first tradition teaching is done by one group of adults; the learners are usually children. In the second tradition, every human being and some nonhuman beings are teachers. In this case, teaching-learning is a single activity viewed from opposite ends. Most teaching is done by nonhumans, teaching by humans is mostly communal and nonverbal. To teach is to show someone how to do something. A variety of languages is used in teaching that correspond to the different forms of education. The book has numerous examples to show the rich possibilities of teaching-learning. 2020
