The next in our series of Loschert Lectures will be delivered by Charles Margrave Taylor, CC GOQ FRSC
In this talk, Charles Taylor will reflect on a project known as the “Disjunctions Project” that he has helped to initiate which seeks to understand how the Catholic Church can better enter into dialogue with the modern world. Recent scandals in the Catholic Church have undoubtedly undermined the credibility of the Church to speak with authority in an “age of authenticity”. This project attempts to consider ways in which the credibility of the Christian message may be recovered in our contemporary secular age.
Charles Margrave Taylor, CC GOQ FRSC (born November 5, 1931) is a Canadian philosopher from Montreal, Quebec best known for his contributions to political philosophy, the philosophy of social science, history of philosophy and intellectual history. This work has earned him the prestigious Kyoto Prize and the Templeton Prize, in addition to widespread esteem among philosophers. In 2007, Taylor served with Gérard Bouchard on the Bouchard-Taylor Commission on Reasonable Accommodation with regard to cultural differences in the province of Quebec. He is a practising Roman Catholic.
