Human Nature....What Is It


with Paul Doherty

Calendar Oct 5, 2022 at 1 pm, runs for 6 weeks


Our combination lecture and discussion course will present two widely accepted answers to this question. One arises from science, the other from religion. They do differ, and we will explore the differences. But knowing that both answers will remain with us for the long haul, we will also explore how they might, should, and actually do cohabit, both in society and in our all-too-human individual minds and lives.

This class will be presented on ZOOM.
