UNO's Tocqueville Series Addresses Civic Religion in A Free Society

A week of excitement at the University of New Orleans continues with the latest Friday evening discussion in the Alexis de Tocqueville Series on Democratic Ideals and Institutions.

The Tocqueville Series is a new lecture series on moral and political thought brought this fall to UNO by new Assistant Professor of Philosophy Chris Surprenant. With his help, the University proudly hosts "Civic Religion in a Free Society: Perspectives from Rousseau and Adam Smith," at 5:30 p.m., on Friday, Nov. 9, in Room 140 of the Liberal Arts building on UNO's lakefront campus. Keynote speaker Charles Griswold is the Borden Parker Bowne Professor of Philosophy at Boston University.

This event is free and open to the public. Free parking is available in the Founders Road lot opposite the Liberal Arts Building, next to The Cove.
