ACU Eric D’Arcy Professor of Philosophy
Inaugural Graduate Unit
Enrolments are now open for Professor Hart’s unit – PHIL604: Issues in the Philosophy of Religion –
which will be held as a winter intensive in July, 2011. Students enrolled in Masters programs in
Philosophy or Theology are invited to enrol. Cross-institutional enrolments welcome.
Prof. Hart will deliver a series of six lectures over a two week period:
 Dates: Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons, starting Monday 4 July and
concluding on Friday 15 July.
 Times: All lectures are scheduled for 4.00-6.00pm
 Venue: ACU’s St Patrick’s Melbourne campus, Room M2-48
The lectures will take as their theme the notion of “contemplation” in the history of western
thought, from Plato and Aristotle, through key texts in Christian mystical theology, to the way
contemplation has come to the fore, in an unexpected way, in modern philosophy, especially the
phenomenology of Husserl and Heidegger.
 Enrolled students will have easy electronic access to all course information, reading
materials (and/or links thereto), as well as audio of each lecture.
 In addition to the lecture content, the unit will involve
tutorials over the subsequent months in which the
lecture material will be discussed and processed. Final
unit assessment will be due at the end of Semester 2.
 Students who reside outside of Melbourne are also
encouraged to enrol. Subject to demand, local tutorials
will be offered at ACU campuses in Melbourne, Sydney
and Brisbane and/or via electronic means.
 Those not wishing to enrol for credit, may still attend
Prof. Hart’s lectures. Standard ‘audit’ fees apply.
