Address to Reflect on Modern Philosophical Revolution

Dr. David Walsh, professor of politics at The Catholic University of America, will present the address "The Modern Philosophical Revolution: A Guide for the Perplexed" on Thursday, Oct. 2, at 3 p.m. at Hope College in the Maas Center auditorium.

The public is invited.  Admission is free.

Walsh is a professor of political science at The Catholic University of America. A specialist in political theory, he is the author of a three-volume study of modernity addressing the totalitarian crisis, the resurgence of liberal democracy, and the philosophical revolution of the modern world. Intended as a guide to the multiple facets of the current age, Walsh's work examines the way in which spiritual crises generate deeper reflections on religious life and shape political order. He is a leading expert on the works of Eric Voegelin and Alexander Solzhenitsyn.

The Maas Center is located at 264 Columbia Ave., on Columbia Avenue at 11th Street.
