About the initiative:
Launched three years ago with generous funding from the Foundation for Excellence in Higher Education, the Arete Initiative sponsors courses, lectures, conferences, and research that concern the pressing questions of meaning, value, and spirit that confront us as human beings and citizens. At Arete, we believe that we are best able to consider such questions when we expose our convictions to the scrutiny of an intellectually diverse community of friends who will both support and challenge us. We encourage the cultivation of intellectual and civic virtues, and strive to foster community across ideological divides between those who share a passion for and commitment to genuine truth-seeking amidst honest disagreement.
About the program:
Now in its third decade at Duke, the Kenan Institute for Ethics is a think and do tank dedicated to understanding the moral challenges of our time and creating scholarly frameworks, policies, and practices to address them. The program is committed to both empirical and ethical inquiry into how individuals, organizations and societies do, should and can live together and treat one another, about what’s good, right, admirable, or fair.
