Religion, freedom in modern liberal state examined
PULLMAN, Wash. - Keeping peace between religious traditions in places like the United States is the result of liberal toleration. However, contemporary conceptions of toleration differ from classical ones, in part based on their relationship to religion. Are modern forms of toleration coherent?
J. Budziszewski, professor of government at the University of Texas, Austin, will discuss "The Relationship between Religion and Freedom in the Modern Liberal State” noon- 1 p.m. Friday, April 20, in Smith CUE 518 at Washington State University.
It is part of the WSU Foley Institute's Coffee & Politics Series. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
to assure there are enough doughnuts and coffee.
Budziszewski specializes in political philosophy and the interaction of religion with philosophy. He has written extensively on classical natural law, virtue ethics, moral self deception, family and sexuality, and the problem of toleration.
His presentation is co-sponsored with the WSU School of Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs.
