Location: The Oak Room, South Dining Hall

Join the Center for Ethics and Culture for a lecture, reception, and book giveaway to celebrate the latest installment in our Catholic Culture Series, featuring Peter Lawler on Walker Percy’s Lost in the Cosmos.

In honor of the centenary of Percy’s birth, Professor Peter Lawler will discuss the 1983 masterpiece Lost in the Cosmos: The Last Self-Help Book, examining “the truth about science, the self, and the help we need but can’t provide for ourselves.” Lawler is a political philosopher and professor of government at Berry College, as well as the co-editor of A Political Companion to Walker Percy.

This talk is free and open to the public. Join for a fascinating lecture and a chance to win a set of Percy’s books!
