The 7th annual Thomistic Seminar for graduate students in philosophy and related disciplines is devoted to examining social philosophy, the crucial, but often neglected study of human experience "beneath" the political state and "above" individual conduct.  Topics will include: Morality and Law
Family & Personal Relationships, Education and Truth, History and Tradition, Work and Leisure, Civil Society and Environment.
