The Veritas Forum
About This Show
How can we mend a broken world? How should we seek justice? What is the good life? The Veritas Forum helps students and faculty ask life's hardest questions. Many of the world's leading universities were founded to answer the big "why" questions. Our mission is to help them confront these questions anew. Learn more at veritas.org.

When we learn to reunite these often divided realms, we may regain our vision of the Wellspring. Devadoss helps us bring these together.
