Friendships, Intellectual Humility, and Reasonable People of Goodwill

by Robert P. George

In this paper Robert George discusses his experience in the secular academy and working with persons holding to very different ideologies. He begins this by recalling his own liberal arts education and how he became inspired to think about the big questions after reading Plato.

George's thinking about politics and religion developed over time into what he calls ‘more orthodox’ and ‘more ecumenical.’ He concludes with advice on how the Christian scholar can have meaningful interactions with those who disagree with Christianity in the secular academy and how Christians can work for reform.
