Christianity and the Public Square

Drawing on Nietzsche, Professor Volf will explore two pervasive and mutually reinforcing nihilisms of our time – our misplaced search for meaning, and our wrongheaded pursuit of pleasure – and counter common critiques of religion by arguing that faith in God intensifies and deepens enjoyment of the world, uniting both meaning and pleasure.

Professor Volf will tie this in with his personal story, his speech at the UN at the time of 9/11, and his participation in the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Councils.
