The UConn Humanities Institute recently convened a panel of prominent media figures in Washington, D.C., to discuss humility in politics. Led by Professor of Philosophy and Institute Director Michael Lynch, it included Krista Tippett, host of NPR’s On Being, and New York Times columnist David Brooks. The event kicked off a three-year research initiative, aptly named The Humility and Conviction in Public Life project, made possible by the Institute and a $5.75 million investment in UConn by the John Templeton Foundation.
