Thu, 2017-02-02 08:14

Public Lecture in Schwartz 156.  Dr. Graeme Hunter, Department of Philosophy, University of Ottawa, will deliver a public lecture, sponsored by the Department of Philosophy.  A commonplace about Descartes is that he had a narrowly Scholastic education and that he later opposed Scholasticism.
