George F. McLean

George Francis McLean (June 29, 1929-September 6, 2016) was a Professor Emeritus at the School of Philosophy of The Catholic University of America (CUA), Washington, D.C., and Director of its Centre for the Study of Culture and Values (CSCV).

He lectured internationally, promoting global philosophical dialogue and cooperation. Likewise, he invited scholars from many countries to participate in seminars in Washington, D.C.

He served as founding President of The Council for Research in Values and Philosophy (RVP) and general editor of its 300 volume publication series, "Cultural Heritage and Contemporary Change".

Professor McLean believed that many philosophical traditions, cultures, and schools seek the truth. His metaphor for this is that these are many roads that converge in “the holy mountain.”
