Now, THAT is REALLY interesting!
I knew that nearly all philosophers (and most French writers) were on
the Catholic Church's index (Index librorum prohibitorum). When I was
in high school -- Boston College High in Dorchester Ma, a Jesuit prep
school -- I and my buddies would make it a point to walk around
campus with an indexed book prominently displayed. We spent a lot of
time in detention. I proudly thought of myself as a political prisoner.
