Thomas Smith, Don Briel, and Alasdair MacIntyre: New Programs in Old Universities

This video features an excellent panel discussion between Thomas Smith of Villanova, Don Briel of the Catholic Studies Department at the University of St. Thomas and Alasdair MacIntyre at Notre Dame.  Here they discuss new programs exploring theology, philosophy, literature, history, and other disciplines in an academic, integrated, and rigorous way.  The popularity of these programs rises exponentially every year.  And where are they gaining ground?  In the undergraduate world as well as amongst faculty who want to teach in such an environment, who want, as Thomas Smith says, "something unique, interesting, and necessary."   This panel discussion was part of the Center for Ethics and Culture Conference Joy in the Truth (2005).
