Breakfast talks - What if I ‘hold the law in contempt and judge the law’? (ADVERTISEMENT)

Thu Apr 22 2010

This is the third in a series of five Thursday breakfast talks where Emeritus Prof Edwin Judge explores both the classical and biblical cultural traditions whose interaction have created the distinctive dynamic mix forming Western civilisation. The talk will be held on Thursday, 13 May.�

An ancient Greek magnate was advised to curb his ambition, otherwise he could easily overreach its rational limit, and such excessive success might provoke the gods to envy. Even if a person meant well by such excessive action, it only served to sharpen that person’s tragic doom. While the Israelite prophets also warned people not to ‘hold the law in contempt and judge the law’, there was nevertheless a possibility of blessing, and even a sinner might plead for God’s mercy.

Emeritus Prof Judge of Macquarie University is one of the leading academic figures in Australia.

Venue:� Silks Coffee Lounge, 170 Phillip St (next to Selborne Chambers).�
