Vulnerability and the virtuous life


Last night, I was invited to speak at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, in conversation with Prof Clerk Shaw, as part of the Veritas Forum. Our topic is whether virtue includes vulnerability, with my position mostly being yes, and Prof Shaw raising some questions about my position and offering an alternative of his own.

The format is two, somewhat opposed talks, one from a Christian and one from a non-Christian thinker on a specified topic, followed by a long conversation and question and answer from audience members. We had a good time and engaged some excellent audience input.

Many thanks to my hosts at U of Tennessee and to Intervarsity and Veritas Forum sponsors.
