"Making Men Moral" Conference at Union University, February 25-27

Readers of WWWtW may be interested in the forthcoming conference commemorating the 15th anniversary of the publication of Robert P. George's Making Men Moral: Civil Liberties and Public Morality (Oxford University Press, 1994). It is a book I have used for many years as a required text in my Philosophy of Law course at Baylor University. I will be participating in the conference as a commentator for a talk presented by Gregory A. Thornbury. Among the other participants are Hadley P. Arkes, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Russell Moorre, James Stoner, and, of course, Robert P. George. If you can make it, please come.

I read George's book on my own in my undergrad days, glad to see it's still a live force.

I, too, read Making Men Moral, albeit shortly after the conclusion of my undergrad days. I feel a quiet sense of pleasure that Dr. Beckwith uses the book as a required text, as it is one that merits further exposure and discussion. Hopefully, its arguments will fructify in the minds of a new generation.
