Truth and Lies in Private and Public Life with Dr. Christopher Tollefsen

February 18 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Natural law theorists have much to say about the virtues of  truth and truthfulness, and the wrong of lying. In these talks, Dr. Tollefson will focus on these virtues and wrongs first at the individual level: what reasons do individuals have to pursue truth in communication and avoid lies and dishonesty? And then in public life: To what extent are the principles of politics and just governance founded on truths?  And, to what extent are concerns for truth and truthfulness an essential part of politics and just governance? I argue that both in our private and our public lives, we often fail to live up to the full requirements of the natural law.
