American Revolution as Total Revolution: Del Noce and the American Experiment

Our next monthly meeting will be held on Friday, August 12th, from 3:00pm to 4:30pm. We will be discussing “American Revolution as Total Revolution: Del Noce and the American Experiment” by Michael Hanby from God and the Crisis of Meaning (Volume 48.3). The PDF can be downloaded from here.

We will meet at Newman House (329 Gordon Street, Guelph, parking off of Dean Avenue) with a BBQ to follow (meat, veggie and fish burgers on the menu).

The following is taken from the Introduction to the issue:
In “American Revolution as Total Revolution: Del Noce and the American Experiment,” Michael Hanby examines Augusto Del Noce’s claim that American culture carries the anti-metaphysical bent of modernity to its apex. While accepting and supporting Del Noce’s assessment, Hanby adds that the United States was more than merely susceptible to such a development, for, he argues, its vision has been guided from the first by an essentially technological ideology that obscures any meaning given in reality. “The reconception of freedom and truth as indefinite possibility gives the American project its revolutionary character, concretely realized in the interminable conquest of every kind of ‘frontier.’”

It will be hybrid meeting. If you are joining us in person, please note that masks are optional when not distancing in doors during the meeting.
