Aquinas and liberalism

Aa The Lumen Christi Institute and the University of Chicago's Department of Political Science will be hosting the 2010 Yves Simon Memorial Lecture this Wednesday, November 17.  The speaker is Paul Sigmund, an authority on political theory and Latin American politics.  Here's the description of the lecture:

Given a renewed interest in the political thought of Thomas Aquinas, many 20th century political philosophers (e.g. Yves Simon, Jacques Maritain, and Alasdair MacIntyre) have brought Aquinas’ thought to bear on questions within contemporary liberal democracies. This lecture will consider this Thomistic renewal and its influence in both European and Latin American Christian Democratic parties. 
The event is at 4:30 pm in the Swift Hall Commons Room, 1025 East 58th St., Chicago.  A buffet dinner will follow.
