scheduled at Dr. Cohen's re-
quest, in order to enlist the
assistance of inaugural
guests in helping the sem-
inary to meet community
needs in the coming years.
On Monday, 50 leaders
from various sectors of the
religious and academic corn-
munity devoted the entire
day to the problem of "The
Role of the Scholarly and
Religious Disciplines in
Shaping the American Ethnic
in the Next Quarter Cen-
tury."
Irving Kristol, Henry R.
Luce Professor of Urban
Values at New York UniNier-
sity, raised specific questions
about the role of a religious
institution like the seminary,
and warned of the dangers
of following "conventional
wisdom, which tries to cap-
ture the future by defining
it in terms the past has made
familiar."
Robert McAfee Brown,
professor of religion at Stan-
ford University, expressed
concern about effective sanc-
tions for ethical behavior in
the contemporary world.
