A Tribute to Michael Buckley, SJ, 1931–2019: Teacher, Mentor, and Friend
Born in1931, Michael Buckley entered the Jesuits in 1949, after attending secondary schools in California, New Jersey, and Japan. His long period of Jesuit formation culminated in the interdisciplinary doctoral program at the University of Chicago, the Committee on the Analysis of Ideas and Study of Methods. At Chicago, Buckley studied and wrote under the legendary teacher and scholar Richard McKeon, whose close reading of texts and classical orientation complemented the broad training Buckley had received prior to Chicago. After graduating, Buckley took a position at the Jesuit School of Theology, Berkley, where he remained until 1986.
