Icelandic Professor to Speak at ONU

Mar 31, 2008
The Ohio Northern University Working Group on Religion, Ethics and Nature (WGREN) will host speaker Dr. Pall Skúlason, professor of philosophy at the University of Iceland, on Tuesday, April 15, at 7 p.m. in Forum of James F. Dicke Hall on the ONU campus.

Skúlason's lecture is titled "On the Spiritual Understanding of Nature."

Skúlason studied philosophy at the Institut Supérieur de Philosophie, Université Catholique de Louvain where he received his doctorate in 1973. He has written numerous books, including "Saga And Philosophy" and "Reflections at the Edge of Askja: On Man's Relation To Nature."

WGREN is a local initiative whose purpose is to facilitate dialog between the academic disciplines and non-academic communities on issues relating to religion, ethics and the natural environment. The organization's primary venues include reading groups, roundtable discussions, and an annual lecture series, all made possible in part through a Metanexus Institute Local Societies Initiate Grant.

This lecture is free and open to the public.
