The USU Catholic Newman Center will hold its annual Newman lecture on Tuesday, October 20 from 4:30-6:00pm.  The speaker this year is Maureen Condic, professor of neuro-biology at the University of Utah.  Her lecture is titled, “The Beginning of Life”.  Eccles Science Learning Center, Room 046.

It should be a very interesting talk.  Reminder that later the same evening, the Philosophy Club will gather at the Bullshead at 8pm to discuss chapter 1 of Jean-Luc Marion’s God Without Being.  For the reading, see the blog announcement.  (I think the only connection between the two events is that both Dr Condic and Marion are Catholic).
