Administrative history

The Institute of Human Values was founded in 1975. It grew out of an interdisciplinary seminar on church-state relations which involved history, philosophy, political science and religious studies, and which treated history as a fertile field for comparative studies rather than as a lineal process. The Institute was established to work toward the restoration of the historic relationship between knowledge, morality and freedom and the rehabilitation of the key-stone of that relationship: the human judgement (Brochures file, 1983). The Institute of Human Values reports to the Vice-President Academic and Research. Known persons to have held the position of director: John MacCormack (1975-1978, 1980-1993) and Arthur Monahan (1978-1979, 1994-2006).
