Aquino gives lecture, leads seminar at University of St. ThomasPosted February 25, 2016
Dr. Frederick Aquino, professor of Theology at ACU’s Graduate School of Theology, gave a public lecture at the University of St. Thomas, Minnesota on September 28, 2015. The lecture drew from his book, An Integrative Habit of Mind (Northern Illinois University Press), and focused on the relevance of John Henry Newman for tackling the question of what it means to pursue wisdom in an information age. It was co-sponsored by the Center for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame, College of Arts and Sciences and the Aquinas Chair.
Dr. Aquino also led a faculty seminar on spiritual perception. Drs. Mark Spencer and Paul Gavrilyuk of the University of St. Thomas co-organized an interdisciplinary faculty seminar funded by an external cluster grant from the Templeton Foundation via the University of Notre Dame. One outcome of the seminar will be a research project in which Dr. Aquino will co-direct, with Dr. Gavrilyuk, an international Spiritual Senses Symposium and co-edit a related volume of essays under the working title, Sensing Things Divine: Toward a Constructive Account of Spiritual Perception.
