7th Jan - In the Michaelmas term of 2011 I delivered the Stanton Lectures in the Divinity Department of the University of Cambridge

Eight Lectures in total on the theme 'Looking for God'. They are recorded on the departmental website. The lectures were delivered weekly under the following titles:

10 October: Looking for God
17 October: Looking for people
24 October: Looking at the brain
31 October: Looking at the face
7 November: Facing each other
14 November: Facing the world
21 November: Hearing music
28 November: The music of the spheres

Since then I have been working on a review of books concerned with the cognitive science of music – The Space of Music: Review Essay of Dmitri Tymoczko's A Geometry of Music. Click here to read review. All comments welcome.

The coming term I shall be teaching a graduate seminar on aesthetics in the University of Oxford.
