Our events are usually held on the 1st Friday of each month, with some exceptions.
Note that on July 20th and 27th we are having our annual Conference with Robin Parry as our guest speaker. More details to follow about this in due course. We won't be having our normal meeting in August as it would have followed directly on the heels of the Conference.
In his last talk, Tony explained how Descartes narrowed our picture of reality, and of humanity. In this talk, he moves to the positive and expounds an amplified definition of both reality and humanity. He will ground this in the debate between Aquinas and Duns Scotus, and then move on to the modern mind and the battle of what it means to be human in the world of cognitive science and artificial intelligence. Is our mind just a machine or is it a soul? Will we one day be able to teach machines to think? if that is so, where is our uniqueness? He will explain how the Incarnation stands like a light on the hill that amplifies what it means to be human, and it locates that vision in history’s ultimate research project – the life, times and Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.
