exploring the virtues of courage and hope

Join us for a SEi Salon!

We will explore the virtue of courage, touching on its relations to other things like hope, perception, and love. A work of art will facilitate our engagement, and of course the atmosphere will be conversational and lively! (Whatnot and hopefully live music will follow).

A few refreshments will be provided, but feel free to bring something of your own to add to the mix.

Please rsvp as space will be limited.

Warm regards!



We will draw from works by Josef Pieper, including his book The Four Cardinal Virtues (see link below); but we will primarily work from his quotes found in the journal on the SEi website. (I've also included a link to Pieper's short reader on the virtues).
