    On Friday, June 23rd 2017, the Very Rev. Gregory Hogg — Priest, Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of North America — delivered a lecture entitled Personhood and Economics: Insights from Dostoyevsky.

    We are witnessing the reductio ad absurdum of the liberal individualist view of the person, and many are looking to collectivist answers.
