Levan Institute Virtues and Vices Series: What is Courage?

Virtues and Vices Series: What is Courage?

Co-sponsored by the Levan Institute for Humanities and Ethics and the Thematic Option Honors Program

Join us for a wide-ranging discussion that tries to get at the virtue of courage. Why might it be important for us to determine the limits of courage? When is an act courageous? When might the same act instead be cowardly or reckless? Can someone act with courage without understanding what courage is? What is the relationship between the virtue of courage and other virtues like wisdom, justice, and reverence? How might we best be courageous in our daily lives?

The discussion will be guided by students from Thematic Option and Levan Institute Fellows and will be moderated by James Collins, Assistant Professor of Classics. All who are interested in participating are welcome.

Date: Monday, September 29, 2014
Location: THH 201
Time: 5:00 – 6:00 PM | Pizza Served
