The first Great Books Discussion will be held next Tuesday, September 9, at 6:30 p.m. on the lower level of the Brown Count Library (Central Branch – 515 Pine St., Downtown Green Bay).

Professor Derek Jeffreys will lead a discussion of Thomas Aquinas’ “On Natural Law”.  Why read a medieval theologian in the 21st Century?  Professor Jeffrey’s suggests that Aquinas raises questions that are still relevant today, such as, is there another law beyond man-made law, and that his work provides a basis for considering such topics as faith, love, and war.

Aquinas’ essay is available online at
