Prof. Montague Brown to Give Bready Chair Lecture
November 9, 2006
Saint Anselm College will mark an academic milestone November 14, 2006, with a lecture by Philosophy Professor Montague Brown, the first Richard L. Bready Chair of Ethics, Economics, and the Common Good.
This inaugural lecture, “The Role of Natural Law in a World of Religious and Political Diversity,” will be delivered at 7 p.m. at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics. The college’s first endowed chair was established by Trustee Richard Bready ‘65 in 2004 as part of the Campaign for Saint Anselm College. Bready’s goal is to advance the scholarly work of the faculty and to uphold the college’s mission in liberal arts education. Brown was appointed last year to the chair.
In this podcast, we feature a recent interview with Professor Brown about philosophy and its application in our daily lives. He also discusses his work as the first Bready Chair at the college.
Professor Brown’s published works include The One-Minute Philosopher [Sophia Institute Press 2001], Half-Truths: What’s Right (And What’s Wrong) With the Cliches You and I Live by [Sophia Institute Press 2003], and his most recent book, Restoration of Reason: The Eclipse and Recovery of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty [Baker Academic 2006].
