Eck delivers Gifford Lectures

1 min read

Diana Eck, Fredric Wertham Professor of Law and Psychiatry in Society and member of the faculty of divinity, recently traveled to Scotland to deliver a series of Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh (April 27-May 7). The lecture series, which was established in 1888 through the endowment of Lord Gifford to four Scottish Universities (Edinburgh, St. Andrews, Aberdeen, and Glasgow), is the oldest lecture series in Scotland and has been described as “the highest honor in a philosopher’s career” as lectures focus on the intersections of religion, philosophy, and science.
