Phyllis Schlafly, renowned author, syndicated columnist, talk show host, and all-around fantastic person will be speaking tomorrow (Monday) night at 7:00 pm in Howell 104 on the subject of “Feminism vs. Conservatism.”
Also, to close out the weekend, a few thoughts from Clive Staples (C.S., to the uninitiated) Lewis:
No emotion is, in itself, a judgment; in that sense all emotions and sentiments are alogical. But they can be reasonable or unreasonable as they conform to Reason or fail to conform. The heart never takes the place of the head: but it can, and should, obey it.
Also from the same lecture series “The Abolition of Man”:
But you cannot go on ‘explaining away’ for ever: you will find that you have explained explanation itself away. You cannot go on ‘seeing through’ things for ever. The whole point of seeing through something is to see something through it. It is good that the window should be transparent, because the street or garden beyond it is opaque. How if you saw through the garden too? It is no use trying to ‘see through’ first principles. If you see through everything, then everything is transparent. But a wholly transparent world is an invisible world. To ‘see through’ all things is the same as not to see.
