This afternoon is our last public lecture of the semester. Our semi-annual Schmitt Lecture is for the benefit of the Schmitt Fellows, graduate students in Engineering, Technology, and the hard sciences. Today, Wednesday, December 7 at 4 p.m. in McKenna Hall we will host Yuval Levin for the Schmitt Lecture.
Yuval Levin, Hertog Fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, analyst, editor, and journalist, reflects on the tensions between our foundational belief in human equality and our provision for financially burdensome public entitlement programs that become prohibitively expensive to pursuing our other public priorities. He examines the issue in light of the stem cell debate and the current health-care and budget debate. His lecture is entitled "The Primary Good: Prioritizing Health in a Liberal Democracy"
Reception to follow.
