Séminaire "Legitimate Forms of Knowledge" (Cambridge, Mai 2010)

THE CAMBRIDGE CENTRE for the study of WESTERN ESOTERICISM organise un séminaire sur : "Legitimate Forms of Knowledge"?
Date and time: Thursday 13 May 2010, 2.30 - 5.30 pm
Venue: Wolfson Court, Girton College, Cambridge

There are practitioners of esoteric disciplines for example: Magic, Alchemy, Astrology, Gnosticism, and there are scholars who study these disciplines. This seminar is for academics who belong to both these groups and would like to begin an exploration of some of the ways we might encourage a better understanding of both these interrelated activities by asking how we define legitimate forms of knowledge.

We are delighted to have with us:
Dr Susan Greenwood Visiting Senior Research Fellow of Sussex University, a scholar and practitioner of magic, whose recent publication The Anthropology of Magic, (Berg, 2009), addresses this question by recounting some of the academic debates about the history and nature of magic together with her own experience of magical practices and begins to examine 'the challenging topic of revisioning science so that magic can be considered as a legitimate form of knowledge.'
The seminar will be chaired by Andrew James Brown, (Wolfe Institute).

There are limited places, if you are interested in securing a place at the seminar please email Dr Sophia Wellbeloved at s.wellbeloved@gmail.com with a brief note of your academic and practitioner interests.
There will be a fee of £15.00 to cover costs (these include tea and free available parking).
