Charles Margrave Taylor
Professor Emeritus, Department of Philosophy, McGill University

Abstract: Is it true that secularity forms the air that animates the way we arrange our society, order and even the place of God in our self-understanding? Through this question, Professor Taylor will explore our contemporary human condition with his philosophical anthropology and account of modernity.
