Thursday: Public Philosophy Lecture

Dr. Greg Kerr of the philosophy department will give a public lecture on Thursday, February 7 from 4:30PM-6PM in the Commonwealth Room of the DUC.

The title of the lecture is, “Charles Taylor: Science and the Disappearing Self.”

Given radical changes in our scientific understanding of the universe over the last millennia, we might wonder whether our understanding of selfhood has kept up. Dr. Kerr will address this issue by examining the thought of Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor, widely recognized as one of the 20th century’s great philosophers.
