Opening Reception: The Spirit of Truth-Seeking

-

Colleges and universities, especially those devoted to liberal arts education, are fundamentally concerned with the pursuit, transmission, and preservation of knowledge. They are, according to Professors George and West, “truth-seeking institutions.” In their October 11th conversation—part of the Being Human Festival of the Princeton University Humanities Council—the professors discussed the conditions that need to be established and maintained for colleges and universities to fulfill their truth-seeking mission. Professors George and West considered the virtues that must be exemplified and practiced by faculty and students alike if in the various fields of study the frontiers of knowledge are to be pushed back, understanding of complex matters is to be deepened, and wisdom is to be found.

The James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University has invited artists working in any medium to use their gifts to capture the spirit of the occasion and of the friendship between these two scholars, teachers, and dialogue partners.
