Friendship Conference

November 6, 2021

In an age of disruption, disconnection and loneliness, cultivating true friendships seems increasingly important to human flourishing. But what is a “true friendship”? How is friendship expressed? And where can we look for models? HBU Humanities professors offer possible answers to these questions.
