Excerpt

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 1940 the Aristotelian Society had the pleasure of recording the lecture of Yves Simon, then associate professor of philosophy at Notre Dame University. Born at Cherbourg, France, 1903, M. Simon pursued higher studies at the Catholic Institute of Paris and at the University of Paris from 1920 to 1929. He taught philosophy at the Catholic University of Lille, France from 1930 to 1938, and at the University of Notre Dame from 1938 to 1947. He is at present teaching at the University of Chicago.

Editor of the collection Cours et Documents de Philosophie (Paris, 1934-1938); contributor to several philosophical and political magazines, in particular to the Revue de Philosophie, Paris, and to the Review of Politics, Notre . . .
