    Former Australian Prime Minister the *Hon. John Howard *will address
    the Blackheath Philosophy Forum on Saturday July 14.

    As part of the Forum’s 2018 program on *Western Civilisation*, Mr
    Howard will refer to the long traditions of Greco-Roman
    civilisations, the Judeo-Christian tradition, and the
    Enlightenment’s “revolution of the mind” to make the case that our
    education system at all levels has seriously neglected and
    undervalued this inheritance, and that “appreciating it is not an
    exercise in cultural triumphalism, rather recognition of a complex
    and enduring historical reality.”

    *John Howard*is chairman of the Ramsay Centre for Western
    Civilisation which has recently been the subject of controversy over
    the decision by the Australian National University to cancel an
    earlier plan to permit the Ramsay Centre to establish a course at
    the university on Western Civilisation.

    *Date: Saturday July 14.*

    *Time: 4pm-6pm.*

    *Place:*The Blackheath Philosophy Forum meets at the Hall at the
    Blackheath Neighbourhood Centre, cnr Gardiner Crescent & the Great
    Western Highway, (entrance from Park) 4pm-6pm, followed by informal
    discussion at a nearby pub.Admission $10 includes a big afternoon
    tea before question time. Hall is heated.All welcome!
