Spring Quarterly—“Why Western Civilization?”
Purportedly, when asked what he thought of Western Civilization, Gandi said "It would be a good idea." The Civilization of the West is not a given — it can go just as it came. What do we gain and lose with or without it?

About the Event
Presenting on the topic, “Why Western Civilization?,” will be Dr. Arthur Hippler (Chairman of the Religion Department at Providence Academy; Adjunct Instructor at St. Paul Seminary). Western Civilization is taken for granted and we're often unaware of how the achievements of the West are not the norms for many people across time and space. Worse still, the idea of Western Civilization is openly abused and assailed.
Why it is so crucial is not a conversation for armchair academics but a great challenge to all of us who live under the patrimony of the West.
