Every other year, a distinguished philosopher visits Tilburg University for one week to deliver the René Descartes Lectures. The inaugural lectures were given by Professor Huw Price from the University of Sydney in May 2008. The Descartes Lectures 2010 will be delivered by Professor Ian Hacking from the University of Toronto and the Collège de France. The title of the series of three lectures is "Proof: Calculation, Intuition, and A Priori Knowledge". Each lecture is followed by two commentaries.

The Descartes lectures are accompanied by a workshop that brings together scholars debating issues related to Professor Hacking's lectures.
