Making something out of 'a whole lot of nothing': the Dominican approach to teaching philosophy.

To celebrate 800 years since the bull of foundation of the Dominican Order by Pope Honorius III, the Albertus Institute will be offering a series of three talks this autumn on Dominican influence on the teaching of the sciences. Lectures will be chaired by Dr Sara Parvis, Senior Lecturer in Early Church History at the School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh.

This lecture by Rev Dr John O'Connor O.P. on "Making something out of 'a whole lot of nothing': the Dominican approach to teaching philosophy" will be the second talk in this series. Fr John is a member of the Dominican Community in Edinburgh, the Assistant Editor of New Blackfriars and a Director of the Albertus Institute.

Whilst lectures are free, we suggest a donation of a £5 for each lecture to cover costs. Tea and coffee will be available after the talk and questions.
