A discussion of the book THE RELIGIOUS SENSE by Msgr. Luigi Giussani.
A presentation by Dr. Dominic A. AQUILA, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. John C. MCCARTHY, Interim Dean of the School of Philosophy, The Catholic University of America, and Sr. Damien Marie SAVINO, FSE, Chair Environmental Science and Studies
Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center
To say that the religious sense concerns Reality, Reason and Freedom may seem like a contradiction, because many in our culture believe that faith and reason are incompatible. If one uses reason, faith is not needed, and if one embraces faith, reason should be ignored.
With Dr. Aquila, we will discuss why it is essential to confront the question of faith and reason in an academic context; Dr. Savino will lead us in an exploration of the boundaries of faith and science; and finally Dr. McCarthy will present the Religious Sense of Fr. Luigi Giussani. This event will be much more than the mere analysis of a book.
