Evening Course: Law, Family and the Person

January 9, 2024 at 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

January 9, 2023 (5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.)

Non-degree seeking students and auditors are invited to join us for evening course with our Dean, Dr. David Crawford, on Law, Family & the Person.

G.K. Chesterton once predicted that the proposition “leaves are green in summer” will one day become a matter of religious conviction over which swords will be drawn. His remark foreshadows our current denial of basic elements of human nature and experience such as the reality of men and women and the nature of marriage. How did we get to this point, and what role has law played? Join us for a critical examination of modern American law in its background, implications, and assumptions.

Selected Texts:

• St. Thomas, Treatise on Law (Hackett, 2000)
• The Roots of Political Philosophy: Ten Forgotten Socratic Dialogues, ed. Thomas L. Pangle (Ithaca, NY: Cornell University, 1987)
• H.L.A. Hart, The Concept of Law (Oxford University Press: any edition)
