In this conversation, Centre Director Jens Zimmermann is joined by Dr. Aaron Kheriaty and Dr. Douglas Farrow. They discuss their intellectual formation by way of theologians such as Hans Urs von Balthasar and St Athanasius; the dismissal of traditional anthropological convictions for the sake of biopolitical control; the loss of the ancient art of dying; the need to prioritize the goods of the soul over those of the body; and much more.

He is also a Fellow and Director of the Bioethics and American Democracy Program at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, D.C., and a Senior Scholar and Fellow at the Brownstone Institute in Austin, Texas.

He focuses dually on classical theological loci and modern problems in the Church or in civil and state institutions, including the university.
