Go here for information about an upcoming (Feb. 4) conference at the Catholic Center at NYU.
In recent years, the philosophical question is acutely felt: what is a university education for? The goal of this event is to reflect critically on the legacy of John Henry Newman with regard to this question. What is it that unites or unifies a university as a cultural entity of research and education? What positive contribution can religion make to the ongoing life of the university in a contemporary context? In a cosmopolitan culture, is the serious consideration of religion a hindrance to the understanding of social co-existence, or is it a prerequisite?
Should be great!
