On Friday, Nov. 9, the Center for Thomas More Studies will present two lectures as part of its Classics on Citizenship Lecture Series. Join them for both Walter Nicgorski's lecture "Cicero on the Nature of Citizen Education and the Role of the Liberal Arts" at 4 p.m. in Gorman A and Michael Foley's lecture "Augustine, the Liberal Arts, and the Theater of Life" at 7 p.m. in Gorman A. Nicgorski's lecture also serves as this week's Philosophy Colloquium.
Walter Nicgorski (pictured at right), professor emeritus of political science at the University of Notre Dame, served as chair of his department and of the Program of Liberal Studies. He is the retired editor of the Review of Politics. He has written extensively on Cicero and liberal education; his latest book is "Cicero's Practical Philosophy."
Michael Foley, associate professor of patristics at Baylor University, is the editor of Augustine's "Confessions" and author of over 100 articles and reviews. His new translations and commentaries of Augustine's early "Cassiciacum Dialogues" are forthcoming from the University of Notre Dame Press.
These lectures are made possible by the Apgar Foundation.
