Koch Lecture Series: In Search of Religious Liberty
Category John Paul II Forum
Year: 2016
Time: 78 minutes
 
Description:
Dr. John Hittinger will discuss the common concern of Alexis de Tocqueville and Pope John Paul II to defend human dignity and liberty in the face of the pressures from within modern democracies to degrade human dignity and to limit freedom.
Religious liberty and association play a crucial role in the very successes of modern politics. Without vigorous religious belief and freedom of conscience, society will more easily become inundated by a destructive “tyranny of the majority” and the degradation of man by individualism and materialism. Dr. Hittinger will argue for the truth of John Paul II’s statement that “The recognition of these rights represents the primary foundation of every authentically free political order.”
Dr. Hittinger is a professor of philosophy at UST and has published four books. Hittinger founded the Pope John Paul II Forum for the Church in the Modern World in 2009. He has published articles and presented papers on a variety of topics including John Locke, Jacques Maritain, military ethics, liberal education, political philosophy and the thought of John Paul II
