Co-sponsored by Liberty Fund, Inc., this programs is an intellectually demanding and stimulating weekend conference that explores the foundations of liberty in a mixture of graduate-level text-based Socratic discussion and lecture sessions. This conference is for seminarians, clergy, para-church workers, social workers, and charity workers.

The purpose of this conference on Evaluating the Idea of Social Justice is to explore the idea of “social justice” and compare and evaluate it against the understanding this concept now evokes in contemporary debates about justice and political order. The all-encompassing claims made on behalf of social justice in these debates often translate into calls for the reduction of personal liberty and a concomitant increase in state power to distribute material goods and the resources of private enterprise in common.

  • This conference will consist of 2 lecture sessions and 6 Socratic discussion sessions.

  • The discussion sessions are text-based and so selected participants are required to prepare appropriately and participate fully in all conference sessions.
  • Readings will be provided to all accepted participants.
  • This conference is for seminarians, clergy, para-church workers, social workers, and charity workers.
