  • Faculty Address

    Faculty Dedication Address

    Flannery O’Connor once remarked that we all breathe in nihilism. For those of you who do not know, nihilism is a philosophical position that says the world is meaningless. There are no objective truths, no goodness, no beauty. Everything is reduced to the solitary subject. In other words, we are alone. Everything is relative. The winner, in this case, is whoever is the strongest. Virtue is a fools game, so give up on courage, justice, temperance, and wisdom.
