The State of America and the World
Monday, November 3, 1986

In cooperation with the Office of the Chaplains, the Athenaeum is pleased to announce a twin-bill on Monday, November 3, when the influential scholars Robert N. Bellah and Emil Fackenheim will be with us.

Bellah, the Ford Professor of Sociology and Comparative Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, led the research team that authored Habits of the Heart: Individualism and Commitment in American Life (1985), a bestselling study now used extensively in colleges and universities. Fackenheim, formerly at the University of Toronto and now teaching at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, is one of the world's leading philosophers. His recent book, To Mend the World: Foundations of Future Jewish Thought (1982), has been widely acclaimed.

At 4:00 p.m. on November 3, Bellah speaks in CMC's Bauer Lecture Hall. Following an Athenaeum reception and dinner at 5:30 p.m., Fackenheim gives his address at 7:00 p.m. No reservations are needed for the talks, but please use the coupon to indicate that you want to attend the dinner.
