The Future of  the Humanities in a Materialist Age

Thursday, November 2 | 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Can we learn about human artistic and intellectual endeavor without an appreciation for the transcendent character of human persons? And to what extent does our appreciation for “the human person” depend upon a spiritual dimension to human life alongside physical and temporal ones? What authority, if any, has the past earned for our reflections today on what it means to be human? Our answers to these questions will shape not only the curriculum of the university, but the very future of the university. More Info.
