Human Dignity Lecture Series
The Murphy Institute's Human Dignity Lecture Series brings together prominent thinkers in fields such as philosophy, theology, and law to explore in a rigorous fashion just what it means for humans to possess dignity. The past two lectures in the series were Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurispurdence, Princeton University, and Gilbert Meilaender, Richard and Phyllis Duesenberg Chair in Theological Ethics at Valparaiso University. The long-term goal for this series is to assemble a set of six or eight lectures, delivered at the University of St. Thomas over several years, into one volumne that can serve as a resource for those interested in a strenuous investigation and defense of human dignity.
Hans Joas, world renown sociologist, gives the final lecture in the Murphy Institute series on Human Dignity.View Event Information »
