Second Annual John Courtney Murray, S.J., University Chair Lecture

"John Courtney Murray - A Model of Engagement"

A lecture by Rev. Robert John Araujo, S.J., Loyola's John Courtney Murray, S.J., University Chair.

Political debate in America today is often characterized by exchanges of loud or angry words.  Reasoned discourse is often absent, and it seems an artifact relegated to the days of a nobler past.  But should this be so?  John Courtney Murray argued that reasoned and civil debate is essential to the American experiment and republican democracy.  The meaning of his statement, "Civility dies with the death of dialogue," will be explored in detail.
