Christopher Dawson Society - Audio Library
About This Show
The Christopher Dawson Society for Philosophy and Culture is an incorporated association founded to encourage lay Christian engagement with contemporary philosophical and cultural issues. The Society takes its name from Christopher Dawson, the great English historian of the 20th century who throughout his work saw the world of spiritual belief “as the dynamic element in history and as a real world-transforming power.” It is the hope of the founders that in some small way the Dawson Society may uphold and continue the work of its namesake.
The Dawson Society is based in Perth, Western Australia and hosts regular lectures and other cultural events. You can read more about the Dawson Society at http://dawsonsociety.com.au/about/
