Albert the Great and the New Aristotelianism

April 30, 2012

Recently, the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology, in Berkeley California, hosted Dr. Michael Tkacz for his presentation entitled “Albert the Great and the New Aristotelianism: A Turning Point in the Western Intellectual Tradition”. In his talk, Dr. Tkacz shows how the life and work of St. Albert the Great represents a crucial turning point in intellectual history, a water-shed moment that separates two distinct stages in the development of the Western intellectual tradition. This presentation marked the twenty-second annual Aquinas Lecture  held at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology. Dr. Tkacz is an associate professor of philosophy at Gonzaga University, in Spokane, Washington. He is also president of the Society of Thomistic Natural Philosophy. [vimeo 40524424 w=500 h=281]
