Weekly Schedule of Events

Somehow missed last week altogether–just slipped my mind! But now that you’re here, how about buying some Lyceum Institute merch? It looks pretty good and helps support our mission.

  • Latin Class(10-11am ET).  Capitulum XXII in Lingua Latina Per Se Illustrata legemus et convertemus in linguam Anglicam.  Qui ianuam pulsat?  Et quid vult?
  • Seminar Discussion Sessions:
    • ​​​​​​​Science: Aristotle’s Organon (1pm-2pm ET).  We will begin to unfold this week the Posterior Analytics of Aristotle, to see the importance and role of first principles and begin striving to understand what makes something inductive in the thought of the Stagirite.
    • Semiotics: An Introduction (3pm-4pm ET).  What is thinking?  We all think–you are thinking right now–but despite this, it remains to most of us a rather vague concept.  By reading some of Charles Peirce’s earlier writings on the question of our cognitive capacities, we hope to bring some clarity and precision to the concept of thinking.
    • Thomistic Psychology: World and Passions (5pm-6pm ET).  Love.  No small topic, this, for our third week; for all things that we do, says Aquinas, are done for something that may fall broadly under the umbrella of what we mean by the word “love”–even, it shall turn out, the things done from hate and anger.
