Event Details

Deborah Mower examines the concept of civility and the conditions of civil disagreement in politics and education. Although many assume that civility is merely polite behavior, it functions to aid rational discourse. She offers multiple accounts of civility and its contribution to citizenship, deliberative democracy, and education. Given that civility is essential to all aspects of public life, it is important to address how civility may be taught. This event is presented by The Hauenstein Center of Grand Valley State University and is in partnership with GVSU ‘s Department of Philosophy.

Organizer

The Hauenstein Center at Grand Valley State University

Inspired by Ralph Hauenstein, we seek to provide a platform for emerging leaders in all three major sectors of public life – business, government, and nonprofit.  We promote civic engagement that (1) honors the Founders’ vision of a constitutional republic; (2) builds on existing democratic institutions that promote justice, freedom, opportunity, sustainable prosperity, and the rule of law; and (3) envisions the possibilities for creating better communities.
