A Conversation with Cornel West and Robert George

Fred Fox School of Music
February 11, 2021

Cornel West is an American philosopher, political activist, social critic, author, and public intellectual, focused on the role of race, gender, and class in American society; he is a radical democrat and socialist. Robert George, an American legal scholar, political philosopher, and public intellectual, who serves as the sixth McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University, is considered one of the country's leading conservative intellectuals.

They are friends and colleagues across their respective ideologies and beliefs. Their dialogues together are meant to send a joint message: arguing for free expression, civil discourse, and mutual respect. And, that our love for one another should not be reduced to or defined by our politics.

On Feb. 15, the two of them will appear together at the Voices of Culture lecture series hosted jointly by the University of Arizona's Center for the Philosophy of Freedom and the American Culture & Ideas Initiative. Please join us. At this terribly uncertain and divided time, the example set by these two great scholars is an urgent and important signal to all of us.

A 20-minute musical performance will precede the talk beginning at 5 p.m.!
