Q&A with Justice Thomas

This Q&A with Justice Clarence Thomas is worth a listen (about 90 minutes).  You’ll hear a defense of “originalism” but also passionate arguments against cynicism and other interesting personal asides.  Around minute 51 is an moving reflection on virtue (courage in particular) as a cardinal virtue (the virtue on which all other virtues hinge).

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
