Roundtable Series: Humility & Civil Discourse
Humility & Civil Discourse: Turning away from anger and towards each other, Led by Dr. Mike Austin
It’s a common observation, and common experience too, that there is a lot of anger in American political, moral, and social discourse. This is true in real life, and online. Humility is an underappreciated virtue that is an important part of the solution to what ails us as a society. If we can take a humble posture towards one another, and ourselves, we can make progress in moving beyond our anger towards a discourse that can contribute to the common good.
Dr. Austin is a professor of philosophy at EKU and author of numerous books, including Humility and Human Flourishing, God and Guns in America, and Being Good: Christian Virtues for Everyday Life.
This event will take place on Wednesday, September 8, 3pm-4pm in the Main Library, Room 208.
All EKU students, faculty, and staff are welcome to attend. Please follow all EKU mandated health and safety protocols.
