Welcome to our next CourTalk to be held at Duchesne College, UQ on Monday, August 27th starting 7pm with refreshments. It promises to be a great night when we explore the deeper question of how we know through love. Here is a short description of the talk:
Western society is heavily influenced by an empirical understanding of human knowledge. While this has led to great advances in science and technology, it has also contributed to an objectification of human relationships with the other; the other person, the natural world, the divine other, God. Bonaventure does not denigrate the importance of empirical knowledge, but insists that human knowledge must also discover its deeper dimensions in the experiences of wisdom and ecstasy. This talk explores the relevance of his thought, with its possible social, ecological and theological implications, in developing a contemporary viable epistemological vision.
