For the Love of Reason: Philosophy Week 2013
January 5, 2013 — The College of Arts and Sciences’ Philosophy Program is excited to announce its first ever “Philosophy Week,” March 4-8, 2013. The weeklong affair will feature major thinkers from across the country, including Drs. Douglas Anderson and Robert Audi. Other events include an interdisciplinary panel on “Religion and the Philosophy of Religion” and a participatory “Philosophy Slam” —think poetry slam, but less limerick, more logic.
Dr. Douglas Anderson, professor of philosophy at Southern Illinois University, will be the first key speaker on Tuesday, March 5th. Anderson writes primarily on American philosophy, and is interested in philosophy's relationships with other aspects of culture. His research ranges from the philosophy of science and religion to the philosophy of sport, music, and education.
Dr. Robert Audi, John A. O'Brien Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame and previous chair of Notre Dame’s College of Business, will speak on Thursday, March 7th. Audi’s work focuses on the philosophy of knowledge and ethics. He is also interested in political philosophy and the relationship between church and state.
