ABOUT THE CENTRE FOR HUMANITY AND THE COMMON GOOD

The James M. Houston Centre for Humanity and the Common Good is a five-year initiative of Regent College dedicated to the question of human identity and its importance for conceptions of the good life. Grounded in Dr. James M. Houston’s Christian theological vision of integrative scholarship combining academic study, practical research, and lived reality, the centre will provide opportunities for interdisciplinary and inter-religious dialogue on the question of what it means to be human. Through planned collaboration with UBC and other academic institutions, and by inviting insights from a wide range of secular and religious perspectives, the centre aims to engage in a broad consideration of human identity and the common good.

EVENT REGISTRATION

The lecture is free, but a ticket is required to participate.
