105 Ives Hall
Spring 2018 St. Albert the Great Forum on Science and Religion
Thomas Aquinas is well known for presenting arguments for the existence of God based on facts about the cosmos, i.e. cosmological arguments. This lecture offers a detailed study of one of Aquinas’s arguments — the argument from contingent being — and differentiates it from other cosmological arguments in light of his understanding of various metaphysical issues such as the eternity of the world and the nature of causality.
Our speaker will be Fr. James Brent, O.P. of the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception.
A reception is immediately following. For more information and past St. Albert the Great Lectures, look HERE.
