Gonzaga University’s “What Can We Learn?” lecture series, which focuses on lessons from great thinkers of the past, continues this spring with the topic, “What Can We Learn from Galileo?”
Gonzaga faculty members Brian Clayton, associate professor of philosophy, and Eric Kincanon, professor of physics, will provide insights into Galileo. Clayton will emphasize the contrast between the Galileo “legend” and the historical “reality,” while Kincanon will focus on Galileo’s strikingly wide-ranging contributions to science.
The free public event starts at 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 18 in the Jepson Center’s Wolff Auditorium.
This marks the 10th consecutive year of this lecture series. The most recent event in this series, presented Oct. 24, 2013, was titled, “What Can We Learn from Feminism?”
