    Stumberg Hall, 3206 Fairfax Walk, Austin, TX 78705, USA
    What's the big deal about divorce? Why should we read and talk about it when everyone around us seems to be fine with it? The truth is: no matter what our family background, our age, or our state in life is, we all need to rediscover the immense impact that family life has on us and on our culture.

About The Event

The physical forms of human settlements can neither cause nor determine individual and communal well-being, but forms of human settlement can either promote or obstruct the variety of external goods that promote human flourishing. Some settlement forms are better than others -- more durable, more economically resilient, more convenient, more beautiful -- in sum, better stewardship of creation's bounty. Since the mid-20th century we have not been making such settlements. This talk presents a project imagining a better human future, a future grounded in both nature and human nature, achievable by persons who understand themselves as intermediate beings -- in classic Christian terms, as citizens of two Cities.
