His talk will consider the proper response to defend archaeological and historic sites in periods of conflict. He will also examine if a military response is justified if it meant diverting resources from the preservation of human life.

Indiana Avenue, Perrysburg. everyday-humanities-series-footerThe 45-minute talk is free and begins at 7 p.m. Sarnecki is a department chair of philosophy and religious studies at the University of Toledo.
