Two Lectures Absolutely Not to Be Missed, Coming Soon


The University of Oxford, England


Some will be surprised that I’m not going to post anything political tonight.  But why should I gild the lily?  It’s been an extremely pleasant evening.  Best just to bask in it.


Instead, I want to call attention to a pair of lectures coming up at Brigham Young University’s Wheatley Institution (which, incidentally, is one of the best new things to have happened on campus in many, many years):


First, there’s Peter M. S. Hacker, who’ll be speaking on “Philosophy and Scientism: What Cognitive Neuroscience Can, and What It Cannot, Explain.”


And look who’s coming on 17 October!  Those who keep up with contemporary philosophy of religion won’t need to be introduced to Richard Swinburne.  His topic will be “The Implausibility of Physical Determinism.”


What treats!




"At sea in an alien culture, where 'normal' is defined as 'deviant'"
"Not My Will, But Thine, Be Done"
"Why that gay marriage study was faked, and why we should expect more like it"
Knowing, willing, and doing
