Virtues and Vices Series: What is courage?

Virtues and Vices Series: What is courage?

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

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

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? All who are interested in participating are welcome. 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.
