Author of "After Evil" to speak at KCKCC September 22

The author of “After Evil: History of Consciousness,” Robert Meister, will present a program on his award-winning book at Kansas City Kansas Community College Saturday, Sept. 22. 

Free and open to the public, Meister will speak from noon-1 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center on the KCKCC campus at 7250 State Avenue.

“Dr. Meister works at the intersection of jurisprudence, political economy, theology and cultural theory,” says Barbara Clark-Evans, Director of the Intercultural Center at KCKCC. “His early publications focus on American constitution development, especially in the area of rights and regulation, and theories of the state implicit and explicit in the works of Marx and Hegel.”

Dr. Meister teaches in the politics, anthropology and history of consciousness graduate programs at the University of California-Santa Clara as well as undergraduate courses in political theory, political theology and human rights.

Educated in Philosophy at Princeton and Oxford and in both Government and Law at Harvard, Prof. Meister has held fellowships from the Rockefeller Foundation, Harvard Law School, Mellon Foundation and the University of California Humanities Research Institute.
