Spring 2018 Seminar Series: Word and Truth

Time: 12:45pm-3pm on Fridays, lunch provided

Dates: 2/16; 3/2; 4/13

Place: Whelan Hall, 16 Stockton Street

          Continuing our study on how the manipulation of language by ideology violates the integrity of the human, this seminar examines the sophistic tendency to flatten language into that which can be manipulated and coerced as opposed to the richness of full human knowing and speaking. Texts include readings from Plato, Aquinas, Arendt, Roger Scruton, and Catherine Picktock.
