Veritas Forum: Beauty In/And Justice
Why do we experience beauty as transcendent yet somehow impermanent and corrupted, and suffering as somehow wrong, rather than a part of the natural order? Why do advocates of each new system of justice believe they can devise legal codes that will achieve a fully just and social order, even though every previous system of justice has failed? The Veritas Forum invites you to come explore ideas of faith, justice, and beauty in our world.
