Is anything knowable or worth knowing? If you’ve honestly, perhaps silently, asked those questions, Dr. Meek’s presentation is for you. Drawing on the ancient notion of covenant relationships as well as the tenets of tacit reasoning in the works of Michael Polanyi, Dr. Meek winsomely argues that…

And then there’s the predatory student loan monster we’ve all come to submit to. Someone’s making a ton of money from all…

The Trust Performing Arts Center, 37 N. Market St.
Lancaster, PA 17603 United States
