Speaker for 21st March 2017

President Mike Turner with Professor John Thompson, along with club members and guests Leo and Teresa Dolan (L) plus Dee Thompson and Jim Donaghy (R)

Coleraine Probus, thinking about 'Humanities today'

The regular weekly speaker's meeting at Coleraine Probus is always interesting, generally entertaining, but seldom as thought provoking and challenging as when Professor John Thompson gave a recent talk. The topic of the professor's discussion was 'The Importance of Humanities Today', and it came with a 'health warning' - the views expressed in the talk were purely those of Professor Thompson, 'even colleagues may not agree with me' he said.
