Responsibility in “The Free State of Florida”: A Moderated Discussion

December 12, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

Moderator: Chuck Kupchella

How have concepts of freedom and responsibility evolved over time and culturally in different places? Responsibility is an antonym for the word, freedom. Since antonym means “opposite or reverse,” does this not mean emphasizing freedom would do the opposite to responsibility? What’s the difference between freedoms and rights? Why is it that rights are rights, but freedoms aren’t free? What does human biology have to say about human freedom and social responsibility? Religion? The Constitution? Come dine with us and be ready to weigh in on a discussion of how these questions bear on the issues of the day across the freedom-responsibility spectrum.

Moderator: Chuck Kupchella served as President of the University of North Dakota, the American Association for Cancer Education and the Kentucky Academy of Science. He holds a PhD in Physiology from St. Bonaventure University. Dr. K is the author of eight books on cancer, the environment and other aspects of human biology. His most recent books: Morality: How it Evolved and how it was Hijacked and Confounded by Religion, published in 2019. “Our First Civil War: A Novel” was published in May of 2022.
