Social Justice: What it is and what it isn't (full hour)
Description: We’ve been hearing a lot about the importance of Social Justice. Unfortunately, the term has been hijacked and is now used to promote any progressive-sounding program or movement, allowing supporters to label their opponents as supporters of “social injustice.” Michael Novak has examined figures from Abraham Lincoln to Pope Francis to discover the true meanings of social justice. He’ll talk about it with us today.
Michael Novak is the founding director of First Things and a former Scholar in Religion, Philosophy and Public Policy at American Enterprise Institute. He serves as a visiting professor at Ave Maria University and is the author of more than 45 books on culture, philosophy and theology and the winner of 1994 Templeton Prize.
