Featuring: David Corey

Attend Scala’s conference, “Art, the Sacred, and the Common Good” on April 30, 2022, to hear Dr. David Corey speak on a panel!

The panel is titled, “Culture & the Common Good: Theological and Philosophical Perspectives on Beauty and Our Life Together.” David Corey of Baylor University will join other distinguished speakers: RJ Snell of The Witherspoon Institute and Public Discourse, Fr. Reginald Lynch of the Dominican House of Studies, and Gordon Mikoski of Princeton Theological Seminary.

Dr. Corey is currently a professor of Political Science in the Honors Program at Baylor University. He focuses on political philosophy and was the recipient of Baylor’s Outstanding Teaching Award in 2008 and in 2018. In addition, Baylor’s Student Government has twice named him Faculty Member of the Year. In 2010, Dr. Corey held University of Tulsa’s Bell Distinguished Visiting Professor Chair and delivered that year’s Bell Lecture on the western just war tradition.

His authorship includes two books, The Just War Tradition (with J. Daryl Charles) (2012) and The Sophists in Plato’s Dialogues (2015).

Dr. Corey completed his undergraduate education at Oberlin, where he earned a BA in Classics and a BMus in music from its Conservatory. He then studied law and jurisprudence at Old College, Edinburgh. He performed graduate-level work in political philosophy at Louisiana State University, home of the Eric Voegelin Institute for American Renaissance Studies. There, he earned his MA and PhD working closely with Cecil Eubanks, Ellis Sandoz and Jim Stoner. During his graduate studies, Dr. Corey was a recipient of the Richard M. Weaver Fellowship from the Intercollegiate Studies Institute and a Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst Fellowship (DAAD) for Research in Germany. He spent the 2000-2001 academic year at the Universität Heidelberg, where he studied German and wrote a dissertation on the Greek Sophists.

Dr. Corey has become involved with many organizations. He is a Faculty Associate at the John Jay Institute, a Research Fellow at the Institute for Studies of Religion, and a frequent seminar leader at The Witherspoon Institute and the Intercollegiate Studies Institute.

His current projects entail examining the loss of healthy political association in the United States and offering strategies for reform.

We can’t wait to have him here at the conference!
