DETAILS:         Catholic University’s School of Philosophy will open its Fall 2005 Lecture Series with a presentation titled “Discovery and Obligation in Natural Law” by Robert Sokolowski, the Elizabeth Breckenridge Caldwell Professor of Philosophy at CUA. Sokolowski’s lecture is the first of 11 in the series, which this year focuses on natural moral law in relation to today’s pluralistic society.


One of the longest, continuously-running major philosophy lecture series in the country, the fall 2005 event will examine the continuing relevance of the natural law tradition to the contemporary social and political scene as well as society’s openness to the tradition. With its origins in Greek philosophy, natural moral law maintains that morality is grounded in reason and human nature.

All lectures are free and open to the public. For additional information, contact the Office of the Dean, School of Philosophy, at 202-319-5259 or click on http://philosophy.cua.edu/lectures/index.cfm
