Summary
"What does it mean to be human?" is the central question of a Christian intellectual, according to Dr. Cornel West, Professor of Religion at Princeton University, in a lecture delivered at Union-PSCE. In a culture indifferent to the suffering of others, the calling of a Christian intellectual is to have the courage to think critically, the courage to hope, and the courage to love. Dr. West also suggested that America needs to examine itself. America has much to learn from the "best response" of African Americans to their experiences of catastrophic circumstance - a response of pursuing justice and truth. American democracy will only survive with a renewed commitment to love and justice deeply rooted in the Christian tradition. At the conclusion of the lecture, Dr. West responds to questions from the audience
