“Our Republic …. For Which it Stands” Conference II

March 26, 2017 @ 3:00 pm

How is democracy faring in 21st century America? What about the long accepted standards of civil behavior and ethical conduct? Do Americans still believe in the power of scientific discovery?

A group of Furman University professors will address those issues and more when they participate in a series of panel discussions that will take place on and off campus during March and April. All of the six events for “Our Republic … For Which It Stands,” are free and open to the public.

Conference II, “Morality and Ethics in Times of Uncertainty,” will feature professors from the Religion, Philosophy and English departments. The events will take place March 26 at First Baptist Church of Greenville and March 30 at Furman.
