THE DAWSON SOCIETY

The Christopher Dawson Society for Philosophy and Culture is an incorporated, not-for-profit association founded to encourage lay Christian engagement with contemporary philosophical and cultural issues. The Society takes its name from Christopher Dawson, the great English historian of the 20th century who throughout his work saw the world of spiritual belief “as the dynamic element in history and as a real world-transforming power.” It is the hope of the founders that in some small way the Dawson Society may uphold and continue the work of its namesake.
