Lunchtime Seminar: Aristotelian Reflections on Friendship

Thu, May 2, 2019 | BAT 5.108

12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

In this last lunchtime talk of the semester, Dr. Dempsey will be offering some reflections on the phenomenon of friendship in the classical and Christian traditions. He’ll begin with Aristotle’s discussion from the Nicomachean Ethics, and his thinking about friendship is very much informed by Aristotle (and others), but this talk is not primarily an interpretation of the text, but as an attempt to think about one of the greatest human goods, and its fate in the modern university and the modern world.

Please RSVP to the CTI account by next Wednesday, May 1, at noon, if you plan to attend.
