Charles Taylor: Religion, the spiritual and art

November 30, 2016, 7pm
Baillie Court, Art Gallery of Ontario

In conjunction with Mystical Landscapes: Masterpieces from Monet, van Gogh and more renowned philosopher and political theorist Charles Taylor considers how attitudes toward religion influence understandings of modernity and its culture. What connections exist between modern spirituality and the rise of mysticism that influenced poets, composers, and artists at the turn of the century? What parallels can we draw between contemporary attitudes toward religion then and now?

Charles Taylor is an internationally celebrated public philosopher. His continuing efforts to break down the traditional barriers between scientific and spiritual approaches to knowledge and understanding were recognized in his receipt of the $1.7 million Templeton Prize for Progress Toward Research or Discoveries about Spiritual Realities.
