The Russian novelist, Leo Tolstoy, once posed the question: “How, then, shall we live?”  For example: in a world marked by tension between individual and community, how, then, shall we live?  Tom Hogan will explore this question against the backdrop of the U.S. Constitution, U.S. History, Ethics, and American Culture.  

The Verdict stars Paul Newman and is the story of medical, legal and judicial malpractice.  The director of the film pursues the ethical as well as legal issues involved. Only key excerpts will be shown from this film during the lecture which promises a lively discussion that will keep everyone’s minds engaged.  Participants are encouraged to see the film in advance which can be checked out at the Oliver Wolcott Library circulation desk.
