Dr. Kumfer, USF professor of philosophy and theology, will consider many current concerns surrounding the concept of “values” as he presents the roots of common confusions, distortions and misconceptions about them. He will discuss the definition of values, how they relate to actual facts, and why they seem to create controversy.
