Lord Gifford and his Lectures: A Centenary Retrospect (16010)

SKU: 16010
  • The first edition of this book was published in 1986, when the Gifford Lectures were one hundred years old. Established by a generous provision in Adam Lord Gifford's will, signed on August 21st 1885, those lectureships, entrusted to the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and St. Andrews, soon became a prominent forum for natural theology. The author, himself a Gifford lecturer, explores the background and contents of Lord Gifford's will as an introduction to his main theme: the functioning of Gifford Lectures as a quasi-institutional framework for natural theology across the broad spectrum of modern philosophical trends. This new edition includes a list and discussion of the Lectures delivered up to 1995.
