Civility in Politics and Religion - LIB100/201 Approved!
Date and TimeThursday, February 13, 2014
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
- DeVos Center » 122E - Loosemore Auditorium
Deborah Mower examines the concept of civility and the conditions of civil disagreement in politics and education. Although many assume that civility is merely polite behavior, it functions to aid rational discourse. She offers multiple accounts of civility and its contribution to citizenship, deliberative democracy, and education. Given that civility is essential to all aspects of public life, it is important to address how civility may be taught. This event is in partnership with GVSU's Department of Philosophy.
