The Veritas Forum
The University of Texas
February 17 - 21, 1997
The Search for Truth
Encouraging Public Discussion
Thomas Jefferson said, "We are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may
lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it."
It is in this spirit that we pursue the question,
"Quae res veritas?" - What is truth?
"Transforming America from the Inside Out"
The purpose of The Veritas Forum is to encourage rational and
thoughtful discussion. All evening and afternoon lectures will be
followed by a time for questions and answers.
Admission to all Veritas events is free of charge. Parking is
available at the Dobie Center parking garage. Simply bring your parking
ticket to be stamped at the Veritas event.
In conjunction with the Veritas Forum an accredited 3 hour week
long, short course will be offered at the Institute for
Christian Studies near the UT campus. Prof Jim Baird who is an
Oxford PhD in the Philosophy of Religion will be lecturing every
morning 9-12 and discussing reactions to the Veritas panels and
lectures. For enrollment information call 1-888-ICS-AUSTIN or
512-476-2772 and ask for Cindy Lippe.
Books by Kay Coles James, Walter Bradley, C.S. Lewis, Alvin
Plantinga, and Phil Johnson will be available during Veritas
Forum week through the Logos Bookstore book table on the
ground floor of Dobie Mall, directly across from Bevo's Bookstore.
Hours are 5 to 7 pm and after the evening lecture until
10:00 pm Monday through Friday.
