Imagining the Gifford Lectures: 134 not out

Main Article Content

Jonathan C. P. Birch


This new regular feature in the journal explores the legacy of the Gifford Lectures in natural theology, which have been delivered at the ancient Scottish universities since 1888. Not only do the lectures present a fascinating picture of various issues and subjects which have shaped and highlighted the intellectual landscape in Scotland and beyond for the past 134 years, but they also offer an opportunity for a renewed engagement with their topics and presenters. Dr Jonathan Birch introduces the lectures, their founder, and one of the contributors, Baroness Mary Warnock, whose 1992 lectures on imagination and understanding speak directly to the theme of this issue.
