What is Love? Examining Love through Science and Faith

Hosted by the Christian Graduate Student Alliance
Tuesday, October 24th from 7:30 – 9 PM in the US Bank Conference Theater in the Union

We’re all familiar with love—our culture is saturated with references to it. But what is it exactly? Is it just a matter of the mind? Is it nature‚Äôs clever way of promoting selfish interests? Is there anything transcendent about it? We’ve invited four experts from a diverse set of disciplines—biology, psychology, theology, and philosophy—for a conversation on what this all-important concept is, and on how the difficult work of loving others is realized. Speakers include geneticist Praveen Sethupathy (Cornell University), psychologist Carrie Bedrow (Hope College), theologian Lisa Sung (Mundelein Seminary), and our moderator, philosopher Steve Brown (OSU). Please join us on Tuesday, October 24th from 7:30 – 9 PM in the US Bank Conference Theater in the Union.
