SPOKANE, Wash. – Contemporary writer and philosopher Edward Feser will deliver two separate lectures at Gonzaga University Feb. 15-16, sponsored by the Gonzaga University Faith and Reason Institute. The lectures, free and open to the public, begin at 7 p.m. each day at the Jundt Art Museum Auditorium, Room 110.

Feser, who lives in Los Angeles and teaches philosophy at Pasadena City College in Pasadena, Calif., will discuss “From Natural Science to Philosophy of Nature” on Feb. 15. The following night, Feb. 16, he will lecture on the topic: “From Philosophy of Nature to Natural Theology.”

Feser’s primary academic research interests include philosophy of mind, moral and political philosophy, and philosophy of religion. He has been a visiting professor at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and a visiting scholar at the Social Philosophy and Policy Center at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. He holds a doctorate in philosophy from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and a master’s degree in religion from the Claremont Graduate School.

Feser said he tends to “write on politics, from a conservative point of view; and on religion, from a traditional Roman Catholic perspective.” For more information about Feser, please visit his website.
