Description

Two newspaper articles on the Philosophy Congress held in Christchurch from 22-25 May 1953, one reporting on the 2nd and the 3rd day sessions; the other reporting on the formation of the NZ section of the Australasian Association of Philosophy. It was the first ever philosophy conference held in New Zealand. The conference was international, as several of the speakers were from overseas. Its initiator and organiser was A. N. Prior and it took place in the old campus of Canterbury University College in the present Christchurch Art Centre. The reports, that ran daily in The Press, were all written by Jonathan Bennett, former student of Canterbury University College and at the time philosophy lecturer at the University of Auckland.
