Visiting Scholar Lecture Series-Jeffrey Bloechl, Ph.D. “Bonds of Perfect Unity: Philosophical Remarks on Love, Mercy and Forgiveness”

Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 7:30pm
Arrupe Hall Auditorium

The Visiting Scholar Lecture Series closes it season with a Talk by Jeffrey Bloechl, associate professor of Philosophy at Boston College. Bloechl will deliver the Rev. William L. Rossner, S. J., Lecture in Philosophy in which he will illustrate how love, mercy and forgiveness, often invoked in Christian discourse, also point the way to an understanding of persons having a value beyond dignity and respect. These virtues are notable in their refusal to be limited by an ordinary morality grounded in justice alone.
