An embarrassment of riches next week.  Hemming lectures on Tuesday, and then another philosophy lecture on Thursday:

John Crosby of Franciscan University of Steubenville will be presenting a talk titled “The Phenomenology of Love”.  It should be an excellent talk, of particular interest to those interested in 20th century continental thought.  I expect his paper to draw from the work of Karol Wojtyla (John Paul II) and the great – and widely under-appreciated – Catholic philosopher Dietrich von Hildebrand.

Dr. Crosby’s lecture will be in Main 304 on Thursday Nov 1 at 4:00pm.

    Will there be a transcript of this session available? Or a podcast maybe?


  2. Kleiner says:

    This is not something we have done in the past, but it would be a good thing. Any students have something that can digitally record voice that we could then post here?


  3. Sandi says:

    I am also unable to attend but very interested in a transcript or recording of the lecture!


  4. Will the viking says:

    Damn, my girlfriend flies in just before then. I will certainly be at the Hemming lecture though. If I can find it before then I will gladly lend my recorder to use. Its been in the use of Shaft (whatever they want to call themselves) and the Religious Studies Club events.
