The tape recorded discussion will be broadcast from 10 to 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The discussion panel will consist of Dr. George Turner, professor of English Bible at Asbtiry Theological Seminary in Wilmore: Dean Albert Ruetz. C.R., of St. Mary's College, St. Mary; Dr. John Henry Melzer, associate professor of philosophy at UK: and the Rev. James W. Angell. pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church in Lexington. The program will be planned and moderated by Dr. Jonah W. D. Skiles, head of the Department of Ancient Languages and Literatures. The current series of discussions by the UK Rotindtable has centered around the "Foundations of Western Civilization." or the great ideas which have contributed to the progress of western civilization. Dr. Skiles, who has planned and moderated the entire series, said: "The foundation of western civilization has been built on great ideas that have set the course of western civilization. One such idea is the one of the dignity of man. This comes from the Hebraic idea of man in God's image and from the Greek and Roman idea that man is a free individual. Notice that the revelation and the rational ideas reach the same conclusion." Dr. Skiles said that the Resurrection brings immediately into clear focus the immortality of man in the same manner that the Incarnation of Jesus brings into clear focus God's interest in man. "Both of these ideas have had tremendous influence upon western civilization," Dr. Skiles said. "Even those who do not believe in either of them will admit that."
