John Milbank's Stanton Lectures

Last week, John Milbank gave the first of the 2011 Stanton Lectures at Cambridge. His lectures are titled "Philosophy: A Theological Critique". There are eight lectures in total, and the text of each one will also be posted on the ABC site – here's the first one. The full series is as follows:

  • 19 January: The Return of Metaphysics in the 21st century
  • 26 January: Immanence and Life
  • 2 February: Immanence and Number
  • 9 February: Transcendence without Participation
  • 16 February: Participated Transcendence Reconceived
  • 23 February: The Habit of Reason
  • 2 March: The Realism of Feeling
  • 9 March: The Surprise of the Imagined
As he says at the close of the first lecture, one of his aims is to "construe language as actual words, phenomena as actual things, mathematics as actual numbers and life as actual transcendence, not virtual immanence."
