The Kripke Lecture, a collaboration between the Thompson Forum and the UNL Norman and Bernice Harris Center for Judaic Studies, presents Dr. Michael Walzer a leading American political theorist and professor of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey since 1980. His recent books include Arguing about War (2004) and Politics and Passion (2005).
For eighteen years, the E.N. Thompson Forum on World Issues has brought a diversity of view points on international and public policy issues to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the citizens of the state in order to promote understanding and to encourage debate. The Forum seeks out forceful speakers who are committed to the issues they address, seeking balance over the range of its programs rather than in each presentation. The Forum does not endorse the views of the individual speakers nor limit their freedom to express their points of view.
