'Man is the maker of his own Cosmos': Constance Naden's Synthetic Philosophy

All welcome!

In this special seminar, under the auspices of the FraMEPhys project, Birmingham alumnus Claire Stainthorp will present on Constance Naden, a 19th century poet and philosopher from Birmingham. She studied natural and life sciences extensively at Mason College (the forerunner of the University of Birmingham) and was a defender of a distinctive metaphysical system called 'hylo-idealism'.

There is a bust of Constance Naden on display in the University's Cadbury Research Library and each year the College of Arts & Law awards a prize in her name for the best MA thesis.


Coming soon.
