The Lure of Wisdom

Excerpt

The Wisconsin-Alpha Chapter of the Phi Sigma Tau, National Honor Society for Philosophy at Marquette University, each year invites a scholar to deliver a lecture in honor of St. Thomas Aquinas. Customarily delivered on a Sunday close to March 7, the feast day of the Society's patron saint, the lectures are called the Aquinas Lectures.

In 1962 the Aquinas Lecture "The Lure of Wisdom" was delivered on March 11 in the Peter A. Brooks Memorial Union of Marquette University by Dr. James D. Collins, professor of philosophy, St. Louis University.

Dr. Collins was born in Holyoke, Massachusetts on July 12, 1917. He received his A.B. degree from Catholic University of America in 1941. In 1942 he received his A.M. degree and in 1944 his Ph.D. degree also from Catholic University of America. After a year as research fellow in philosophy at Harvard University he came to St. Louis University in 1945.
