Dr. Hankey Retires and is Reappointed
Dr Hankey has been retired from his King’s Chair as Carnegie Professor and is now appointed by Dalhousie to a post-retirement position. From the first of July, he is Professor of Classics at Dalhousie University, teaching four and a half classes in 2015-16 and helping with administration tasks. He hopes to expand his writing and research. Currently he has a monograph resulting from his Aquinas Medal and Lectureship at the University of Dallas, an introduction to Aquinas’s Neoplatonism, in press, is preparing to open a colloquium celebrating the 750th Anniversary of St Thomas’ Summa theologiae in Paris in December, and writing a book entitled Christian Neoplatonisms: A Beginner’s Guide due at the publisher next Summer.
As part of our participation in the ”Raison et Révélation: l’Héritage Critique de l’Antiquité”, in 2017 we plan to host a Colloquium entitled “Wisdom belongs to God” (Socrates, Apology 23a: τὸ δὲ κινδυνεύει, ὦ ἄνδρες, τῷ ὄντι ὁ θεὸς σοφὸς εἶναι, καὶ ἐν τῷ χρησμῷ τούτῳ τοῦτο λέγειν, ὅτι ἡ ἀνθρωπίνη σοφία ὀλίγου τινὸς ἀξία ἐστὶν καὶ οὐδενός). The Colloquium will celebrate Dr Hankey’s scholarship and teaching by a consideration of the self-criticism of reason within the Hellenic tradition. We hope that a great number of his former students will participate.
