Book description

The Christopher Dawson Centre for Cultural Studies was established in Tasmania in 2013 to raise awareness of “the Catholic Intellectual Tradition as an essential component of human civilisation”. Each year the Centre hosts a colloquium (a conversation, not a mere conference!) that challenges prevailing aspects of secular thought in a post-Christian world. Here is a full transcript of the papers presented at both the 2015 and 2016 colloquia.

Caution:  this volume contains Dangerous Ideas.
