As today is deemed International Philosophy Day by UNESCO, behind these doors at the Dominican College on Empress Avenue, a symposium was held on the topic, "Does Metaphysics Have a Future?" A perfect setting! To offer some history, the Dominicans brought their school of Theology and Philosophy to Ottawa in 1900 and they still have a dynamic presence even though the college has also been open to non-secular students since 1967. It is ideally a college for the human spirit and personal development, and you can view upcoming events here. Included is a Vernissage on December 1st featuring the paintings of Claude Béland.
