Philosophy Lecture on Tuesday

Laurence Paul Hemming will be returning to USU next week.  He has lectured here before and has been very well received.  He is very capable on a wide range of subjects (his last talk was on Zeno’s paradox), but is probably best known for his work on Heidegger (his book Heidegger’s Atheism was well received) as well as work on Nietzsche.

He will be here next Tuesday (Oct 30) at 3:30 pm in Animal Science 314.  The title of his talk will be ‘Rationalising the Animal in Humanity: Philosophy and the Birth of Thinking’.

Everyone is also welcome to his public lecture at the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church at 7pm Tuesday.  Hemming has published an excellent book on the liturgy, and his lecture that evening is titled ’Why worship is the source and summit of our lives as Catholics?’.

Church address: 725 South 250 East in Hyde Park.  Drive north from campus on 800 East for  few miles.  A little past 2900 North, you enter into Hyde Park (and the street number changes to 250E).  You will see the church on the left a few blocks later.

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
