In Spring 2018, the Humanities Center began a major and ambitious exploration of the three underlying concepts that constituted the foundation of USD at its inception: beauty, goodness, and truth. In the words of Mother Rosalie Hill, “Beauty will attract them, goodness will lead them, but the truth will hold them.” Having examined the concepts of both beauty and goodness, we complete the series with an investigation into the idea of truth, approached from a range of perspectives and disciplines. Each session consists of three presentations by experts drawn from USD’s College of Arts and Sciences. At a time when the very idea of truth appears to be under attack, this semester-long investigation takes on topical and urgent significance.
