You are cordially invited to the next of this year’s Thomistic Institute Open Lectures, where we discuss the issue of a relationship between nature and grace. The nearest meeting will take place on Thursday, April 12th at 7 p.m. in Jacek Woroniecki O.P. Hall (Dominikańska St. 2). The lecture entitled The Virtues of the Children of God: Aquinas and the Life of Grace will be given by fr. prof. Andrew Pinsent.
Fr. Pinsent is a theologian, philosopher and physicist. He is a research director of Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion and a member of the Faculty of Theology and Religion at the Oxford University, of the Harris Manchester College and of the Anscombe Bioethics Centre. Before being ordained as a priest he worked, among others, as a particle physicist at CERN. He received many research grants from the Templeton Foundation. Currently, his main research interests include a philosophy of science, virtue ethics, metaphysics and philosophy of persons. He also specializes in Aquinas’ thought (especially his ethics).
The TI Open Lectures are co-organized by the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Admission free.
