The Ryle Lecture Series was established by Trent University's Philosophy Department in 1977 in memory of the late Professor Gilbert Ryle of Oxford University. They are made possible by a grant from the Franklin J. Matchette Foundation and by funds from an endowment established by members, alumni, and friends of the department. Each year, the Ryle Lecture Series brings a distinguished philosopher to the University for lectures and informal meetings. Recent lecturers include Drucilla Cornell, Dennis Dutton, Gerry Cohen and Susan Haack.
