2017 Aquinas Lecture - Guides for the Perplexed: Aquinas and al-Ghazali on the Moral Life

Presented by Marianne Farina, CSC


Watch via Livestream

Marianne Farina, CSC

Marianne Farina, CSC, DSPT Professor of Philosophy and Theology, will explore the theological ethics of Imam Abu Hamid  al-Ghazali (1058-1111) and Saint Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274).  Grounded in their respective religious traditions, their virtue theories show us that dialectic processes in the search for truth, animate faith and foster justice.  As virtuous persons we participate in dialogue and discernment to support ongoing learning and promote the common good. Light reception will follow.
