Theology and Philosophy
The Simone Weil Lecture on Human Value was first held in 2000, an initiative of Professor Raimond Gaita. It is held annually in Brisbane and Melbourne.
Each year, a distinguished international scholar is invited to give a public lecture and academic seminar at ACU. The lectures are not intended to be a forum for engaging specifically with the work of Simone Weil, but are inspired by Weil's commitment to recognising the full humanity of our fellow human being, by her moral idealism and by her commitment to social justice issues.
The 2015 Simone Weil Lecture will be presented on the topic:
Tears the Civil Servant Cannot See: Ethics, Politics and the Individual (Abstract available here)
Speaker: Professor Michael Morgan (Emeritus Professor, Indiana University & Honorary Professor, ACU)
Tuesday 23 June
Mercy Lecture Theatre
Thursday 25 June
ACU Leadership Centre
* Light refreshments will be served from 5:30pm
An archive of past Simone Weil lectures is available via the menu on this page.
