Lecture Series Kicks Off with “The Soul of the Statesman”
Each year, Wyoming Catholic College’s Annual Lecture Series welcomes lecturers from the wider academic community to the town of Lander—distinguished men and women who contribute complementary perspectives across a wide range of disciplines. And on Friday, September 9th, at 7:00pm, the College will hold the first in this year’s series: “The Soul of the Statesman: Reflections on Greatness, Courage, and Moderation,” by Dr. Daniel J. Mahoney.
Dr. Mahoney is Professor Emeritus at Assumption University, Senior Fellow at the Real Clear Foundation, and Senior Writer at Law and Liberty. He is a specialist in French political philosophy, anti-totalitarian thought (especially Solzhenitsyn), and the intersection of religion and politics. He is the author or editor of twelve books including Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: The Ascent From Ideology (2001); The Conservative Foundations of the Liberal Order (2010); The Other Solzhenitsyn: Telling the Truth About a Misunderstood Writer and Thinker (2014); and The Idol of Our Age: How the Religion of Humanity Subverts Christianity (2018). He is executive editor of Perspectives on Political Science. In 1999, he was awarded the Prix Raymond Aron. His latest book, The Statesman as Thinker: Portraits of Greatness, Courage, and Moderation, was published by Encounter Books in May 2022.
The event will be held at the Lander Valley High School Auditorium (350 Baldwin Creek Road) and is open to the public. We hope to see you there!
