Philosophy professor Dr. John Cuddeback will be delivering a lecture for the Thomistic Institute this coming Monday, July 25. Titled “Time Management: A Thomistic Approach,” the talk will present a counter to modern culture’s concept of time management through the words and works of St. Thomas Aquinas.

Cuddeback, who lectures widely on topics including virtue, fatherhood, friendship, and household, will deliver the lecture at St. Joseph’s on Capitol Hill beginning at 7:00 pm, with the lecture free and open to the public. The talk will delve into how modern society has fallen into the trap of trying to save time when, in fact, “we have all the time we need if we think differently about it. And St. Thomas Aquinas can show us how,” according to Cuddeback.

This is Cuddeback’s latest lecture for the Thomistic Institute, following popular lectures on friendship. The Thomistic Institute, which is part of the Pontifical Faculty of the Immaculate Conception at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, D.C., promotes Catholic truth in the modern world by strengthening the intellectual formation of Christians at universities, in the Church, and in the wider public square. Cuddeback’s lectures have played a key role in that mission, providing practical solutions to problems faced by people today, including how to navigate friendship in the social media age, how to maintain and bolster friendships as young adults, and, now, how to properly manage time according to Aquinas.

Cuddeback has taught at Christendom for over 25 years now, with his classes continuing to inspire generations of students. His professional writings have appeared in various academic journals and books and his popular work, True Friendship, was recently republished by Ignatius Press. He writes for his blog LifeCraft weekly, bringing ancient wisdom to modern readers.
