Aquinas on the Final Purpose of Human Existence and Human Prudence
Join Father White as he leads us to look at prudence (ethical reasoning) from this particular perspective: as a virtue that is connected with the final end of the human person, and an authentic sense of human freedom.
Time & Location
Sep 11, 12:00 PM - Nov 13, 1:00 PM
About The Event
Over the course of ten Friday lunches, we will read and discuss provocative essays on prudence by two leading thinkers. The first six Fridays will be spent on excerpts from Russell Kirk's Politics of Prudence. For the final four meetings, we will look at Josef Pieper's commentaries on prudence in his book, The Cardinal Virtues. No outside reading is required. The essays are short enough that we should be able to read them as a group and then launch into a good discussion about their implications. Bring your lunch and join us every Friday starting September 11th.
We will meet in the courtyard between Batts Hall and Mezes Hall
