Professor Michael White will speak at the sixth annual John F. Scarpa Conference on Law, Politics, and Culture in Villanova, Pa., Sept. 30.

The conference will honor the achievements of John M. Finnis, Biolchini Family Professor of Law at the University of Notre Dame Law School and Professor of Law and Legal Philosophy in the University of Oxford, especially the 2011 re-release of his book, Natural Law and Natural Rights (1981) (Oxford University Press).

White’s work lies principally in the areas of history of philosophy, science, mathematics of formal logic and of political philosophy and related areas of moral theory and jurisprudence. His recent interests include the history and theory of natural law and the interaction of this tradition with theology and with other jurisprudential traditions such as legal positivism. He teaches a course on traditions in jurisprudence.
