Next Quarter: Invited Speakers

Next quarter we will have two guest speakers from the University of Chicago. John Haugeland will visit us first, to discuss death and dasein. Then Jonathan Lear will visit a bit later, to discuss authenticity. Prof. Lear's discussion will spring from one of his most recent books, Radical Hope, which you could read over break (it's short and compelling) if you want some background for his talk.

As of the end of winter quarter, we plan to meet again on Thursday, April 3, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. We'll try to find a room in Cobb, as usual. This will likely be our meeting with Prof. Haugeland, so prepare your thoughts about what it is to be towards death and what in the hell 'dasein' means!

Have a good break,
Kate and nate
