WHEN: Thursday, February 19, 2004 at 8:00 PM.
Solís Hall 107 at UCSD.

The speaker is Stanley Martin Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics at the Divinity School of Duke University.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer is well known for his heroic opposition to the Nazis. This lecture will take a look at Bonhoeffer's understanding of lying and why he thinks it appropriate to hold politics to truthful speech. The relationship between truth and politics is a challenge for those of us living in allegedly democratic regimes.
