Philosophy Club Lecture

Thursday, Feb 16, 4:30pm in RWST 113

We will have a visiting scholar – R.J. Snell – on campus this Thursday.  He will be presenting on a 2oth century philosopher named Bernard Lonergan.  Though Lonergan is under-read these days, he was quite famous in his time (Time Magazine ran a feature on him in the 1970s, calling him the finest philosophical thinker of the 20th century).  Dr Snell will introduce us to Lonergan, what he had to say, and why he is significant.

His talk will be called, “Authentic Subjectivity is Genuine Objectivity: Self-Knowledge and the Hope of Philosophy.”

All are welcome!

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.
