John Howley, M.A., D.Litt. (1866-1941), b. Sligo, Ireland. He was educated at Summerhill College; at St. Stanislaus College, Tullamore; by private studeis with Father A. Sturzo, S.J.; and at University College, Dublin. "His scholastic career was brilliant throughout." In 1914 he was appointed Professor of Philosophy in University College, Dublin, and served in that post for twenty-one years.
"Though he was interested in all branches of philosophy, his main interest lay in the philosophical bearings of asceticism and mysticism. These subjects he studied deeply, and they were the main theme of his writings. He was not a prolific writer. He published only one book, Psychology and Religious Experience (1920), for which the degree of D. Litt. was conferred upon him by the National University of Ireland." - Stephen J. Brown, Studies: An Irish Quarterly Review (Dec., 1941) pp. 603-604.
