Ideological Conditioning, Shaping Public Opinion & The Holocaust: A Philosophical Perspective |
April 26 | 11 a.m. - noon | Student Commons 114 | Greeley Campus
Aims Professor, Daniel Alvarez, will discuss how our approval or condemnation of war, violence, and injustice is often shaped by social forces operating beyond our immediate awareness. Since ideological conditioning has been and continues to be subtle, it is vital to understand how dominant ideologies work and our moral responsibility to assess the veracity of our beliefs. This event is part of the community-wide Voices from the Holocaust Series, featuring Greeley and Weld County memorial observances.  These events aim to educate community members about the Holocaust and confront racism, bigotry, hatred, and intolerance.
