NEW YORK, NY - MAY 23, 2012 - The Center for Public Conversation at the Institute for American Values will host a conversation on Tuesday, May 29th with Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton. Professor George will examine what constitutes the human good while discussing some of today’s most pressing-and often divisive-issues facing our society. This public conversation will be moderated by David Blankenhorn, the founder and president of the Institute for American Values.
There is a very real and growing concern, from many quarters, regarding increased threats (real or perceived) to religious liberty here in America. From healthcare legislation and education, to same-sex marriage and judicial appointments, questions about religious liberty have taken a front seat within the public square. At the heart of these debates are also fundamental questions about the role of government, the market, and the often overlooked sphere of civil society. Professor George offers his insights about these and other topics in what promises to be an informative and far-ranging conversation.
