Sterling McMurrin Lecture: "The LDS Intellectual Tradition: A Study on Three Lives"
Apr 11, 7pm, Salt Lake City Main Library Auditorium
This lecture begins with the definition of an intellectual as one who loves and is committed to the life of the mind, one for whom thought is both a delight and a necessity, a source, as well as means for human flourishing. This does not mean a life without conflicts, as illustrated by the three intellectuals - Lowell Bennion, Sterling McMurrin, and O. C. Tanner. Kathleen Flake considers their intellectual loves and conflicts in relation to the religious culture out of which they came. Doing so will tell us something about whether there is a Mormon intellectual tradition and, if so, what are its distinctive features? Indeed, it is hard to imagine a more fertile place to find the answer.
