About the lecture: 
In Fides et ratio, philosophy is committed to serving the expansion of right reason, refuting claims against the possibility of enduring truth, and spelling out the spiritual dimension of being human. Each of these tasks requires a form of courage that deserves our close attention, because a good understanding of it may shed some light on the nature of being and thinking in the modern world.
