CANCELLED: Annual Royackers Lecture 2020: Value and Faith in a Stratified World

May 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

 

Please note that both this event and the Toronto School of Theology Conference have been cancelled due to precautionary measures against the spread of COVID-19

 

 

“Value and Faith in a Stratified World: How Social Structures Preserve, Undermine, and Transform Value.”

Value is a notion most fundamentally rooted in culture and in the virtue of persons. Nonetheless, social structures have fundamental causal impact on values, whether preserving or undermining them. Critical realist sociology helps us understand how social structures have this effect: they present us with restrictions and opportunities that often alter the decisions we would otherwise make.

 

This lecture also serves as the Plenary session of the Toronto School of Theology Conference 2020.

Presented by Dr. Daniel K. Finn of the College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University, Minnesota.

 

The Annual Royackers Lecture honours the memory of Fr. Martin Royackers, S.J, the first English Canadian Jesuit killed while serving overseas. It is made possible through the generosity of Mundiregina Resources, Canada.
