About The Event

Join us for a talk and FREE dinner on Thursday, November 16 from 6-8 PM with UT professor of government and philosophy, Dr. J. Budziszewski on “Common Sense and Misconceptions about Moral Character.” Please RSVP, as we are limited to 20 people for this free dinner!

What: Considering how important moral character is, one would think we would all know all about it. Actually, there are certain things most people know; certain things that used to be common knowledge but no longer are; and certain things that almost all of us get wrong. Dr. Budziszewski offers reminders concerning the first, helpful comments concerning the second, and clarifications about the third.

Who: Professor Budziszewski is a professor of government and philosophy at the University of Texas. His research interests concern ethics, politics, religion, and the relations among them, which cover a lot of territory. Several of his recent books are On the Meaning of Sex (ISI Books, 2012) and Commentary on Thomas Aquinas’s Treatise on Law (Cambridge, 2014). Nobody who has read the description of his talk, however, will be surprised that his most recent work is Commentary on Thomas Aquinas’s Virtue Ethics (Cambridge, 2017). Presently he is writing on happiness and ultimate purpose.

Where: The Clay Pit, 1601 Guadalupe St.

When: Thursday, November 16 from 6:00-8:00 PM
