Stanley Hauerwas Public Lecture
Monday, November 30
(5 Hoskin Avenue)
Stanley Hauerwas is an American theologian, author, ethicist, and public intellectual. Professor Hauerwas has sought to recover the significance of the virtues for understanding the nature of the Christian life. This search has led him to emphasize the importance of the church, as well as narrative for understanding Christian existence. His work cuts across disciplinary lines as he is in conversation with systematic theology, philosophical theology and ethics, political theory, as well as the philosophy of social science and medical ethics. He was named “America’s Best Theologian” by Time magazine in 2001. Dr. Hauerwas, who holds joint appointments in Duke Divinity and Law Schools, delivered the prestigious Gifford Lectureship at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland in 2001.
