  • What fun it must be to have a group with these interests who will actually come to the screening and discuss it afterward! Very nice. I can confirm that J.P. is a good speaker; I have not seen this one, but I am sure you’ll find him engaging.

  • Well with your ringing endorsement I am sure we will have an excellent turnout – thanks for stopping by. In New Zealand we can count the number of philosophers of religion on one hand (and still have fingers spare *groan*) so DVD’s are as good as it gets or else we have to bring in people who are not qualified.

    While I have you here, any chance I can book you and Lydia to speak to Thinking Matters next time you are passing through New Zealand?

  • Tim

    No Bleguim is a bit far.

    A better scenario from my end is (a) I get an academic posting somewhere and (b)I go to the US and attend some EPS conferences.

  • If ever we’re south of the equator and aft of the Prime Meridian, we’ll be sure to let you know! About the closest we’re likely to get in the near future is this conference in Belgium this June. Not exactly hailing distance. Regrets.

  • Seriously, if that does happen, we’d be delighted to meet you (singular or plural). My email address is easy to find: by all means “ping” me if it looks like you might be in the US at any point.

  • That would be wonderful – no plans to travel in your direction in the near future but we will keep that in mind should things change.
