This year's Institute for Philosophy and Religion's series, "The Contemporary Face of Suffering," will explore important philosophical, religious and literary aspects of suffering. From recent public debate about physician-assisted suicide and other end-of-life choices to new academic research on topics such as social suffering and the effects of trauma, there is much to prompt contemporary philosophical reflection about the nature and meaning of human suffering.
