Beyond Sunday attended the program discussing returning civility to the American civic dialogue at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture.  The talk was offered as part of the Center’s ongoing Civility in America series.   Princeton Professors Robert P. George and Cornel West, a conservative and a liberal discussed the importance of freedom of speech in the search for truth, both on campus and in wider society, in a conversation moderated by Fr. Matt Malone, S.J., editor in chief of America magazine.
