Conference - November 1–3, 2018 - Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn - What is the proper relationship between God, the human person, and the state?

“Higher Powers”

2018 Fall Conference | November 1–3, 2018

In November, the Center for Ethics and Culture will host “Higher Powers,” a three-day conference examining the proper relationship between God, the human person and the state. One of Solzhenitsyn’s sons will address the conference.

What is the proper relationship between God, the human person, and the state? In a 1993 address, Nobel Laureate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn observed that, “having refused to recognize the unchanging Higher Power above us, we have filled that space with personal imperatives, and suddenly life has become a harrowing prospect indeed.” Twenty-five years after Solzhenitsyn’s address, and one hundred years after his birth, the Center for Ethics and Culture’s 19th Annual Fall Conference will consider how every human pursuit can be oriented toward higher powers and reflect on the true measures of social progress, the role of morality in law and politics, and the dynamics of liberty, dignity, self-sacrifice, and the good in public life.

In its characteristic interdisciplinary spirit, the Center for Ethics and Culture encourages submissions from a wide array of fields of inquiry, including theology, philosophy, political theory, law, history, economics, and the social sciences, as well as the natural sciences, literature, and the arts. In honor of his centenary, we also invite reflections specifically on Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s life and work.

  • The deadline for abstract submissions is July 15, 2018. 
  • Notification of acceptance will be made by August 15, 2018. 
  • One-page abstracts (no panel proposals, please) and CVs must be submitted via the form below
