Aquinas Lecture
Thursday, October 17, 2013 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
Rev. Lawrence Dewan, OP, will speak on "Thomas Aquinas, Wisdom, and Human Dignity: Philosophy and Beyond."

Each year, the Center for Thomistic Studies' Aquinas Lecture brings a distinguished member of the philosophical community to the University of St. Thomas for a talk which displays the great resources of the Thomistic philosophical tradition, either by addressing a subject directly related to the writings of St. Thomas or some other figure in the tradition, or by addressing more systematically a question of enduring philosophical importance.

Among the Aquinas Lecturers the Center has had the privilege of hosting are such renowned thinkers as Henry Veatch, Joseph Owens, Elizabeth Anscombe, Peter Geach, Janet Smith, Alasdair MacIntyre, Germain Grisez, Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J., Msgr. John F. Wippel, Fr. Leo J. Elders, SVD, and Archbishop J. Michael Miller. To this list the Center is very pleased to add our 2013-2014 lecturer,Rev. Lawrence Dewan, OP,Professor of Philosophy, Dominican University College, Ottawa, Ontario.
