The Aristotelian Society of Marquette University each year invites a scholar to deliver a lecture in honor of St. Thomas Aquinas. Customarily delivered on the Sunday nearest March 7th, the feast day of the Society's patron saint, these lectures are called the Aquinas lectures.
In 1947, after Dr. Vernon Bourke delivered a lecture, "St. Thomas and the Greek Moralists," on March 9 the Society invited another scholar, whose duties do not permit him to come to the University on the customary date, to give another Aquinas lecture in the fall. It now has the pleasure of recording that lecture, given Oct. 26, by Étienne Gilson of the Académie Française.
