Addiction is a very common problem in today’s world. In light of its prevalence, the Christian is led to ask: how should we understand the darkness of addiction vis-à-vis virtue, vice, and grace? This conference will consider the problem of addiction from psychological, philosophical, theological aspects.
The Thomistic Institute is delighted to announce that Fr. Wojciech Giertych, O.P. (the Papal Theologian, Vatican City), Dr. Craig Steven Titus (University of Fribourg, Switzerland), and Dr. Paul Vitz (The Institute for the Psychological Sciences, Virginia) will be participating in this conference examining the problem of addiction from a Catholic and Christian perspective.
This event is free and open to the public.
