What makes a human being a person? Is there a difference between the two? Should there be? Do we have rights because we’re human or because we’re persons? Why does the definition of a person change so often and is it important? Join us as we use philosophy and history to grapple with these crucial questions.
Join us on Thursday, October 24th at 7:30pm in the GSA lounge (Room 217) of the University Centre to have these questions answered!
Our speaker for this event will be Fr. Denys A. Scully.
