Next meeting EBC 18 July 2014

The next meeting of Edmund Burke’s Club (Aust) Inc will be on Friday 18 July at the Savage Club, Melbourne City. Gerard Wilson will give a talk on ‘Burke’s Philosophy of Rights’. The intention is to draw a line from a general idea of natural law – which was the subject of Fr Tattersall’s talk at the previous meeting – through to Burke’s positive conception of ‘real’ rights and his condemnation of the contract theorists’ ‘abstract natural rights’. The meeting is open to all interested people.
