Are you on the verge of a college existential crisis? Do you find yourself screaming into the void, binge-watching Netflix, and endlessly browsing memes in hopes of finding the answer to the age-old question, “What is the meaning of life”? If so, this may be the event for you!

Please join us for a lecture on the difference between meaning and purpose in our lives. In this talk, Dr. Joshua Hochschild will be shifting the discussion of the modern question of meaning to the more classical question of purpose. This talk is sponsored by the Thomistic Institute and is free and open to the public.

Our guest speaker, Dr. Hochschild, is a Professor of Philosophy and holds the Monsignor Robert R. Kline Chair in Philosophy at Mount St. Mary’s University, where he also served as the inaugural Dean of the College of Liberal Arts from 2009-2015. His primary research is in medieval philosophy, especially logic and metaphysics, with broad interest in the continuing relevance of Aristotle, St. Thomas, and the Catholic intellectual tradition (including essays and reviews on social thought, John Henry Newman, jurisprudence, liberal education, economics, and theology). He is the author of The Semantics of Analogy: Rereading Cajetan’s De Nominum Analogia (University of Notre Dame Press, 2010) and co-author of A Mind at Peace: Reclaiming an Ordered Soul in the Age of Distraction. Additionally, he is co-editor of Virtue’s End: God in the Moral Philosophy of Aristotle and Aquinas and Ethics Without God? The Divine in Contemporary Moral and Political Thought (St. Augustine’s Press, 2008).
