The Philosophy Club hosts "Ask a Philosopher!"
The Department of Philosophy has lined up an amazing panel of philosophers to answer all of your burning philosophical questions! Four gracious faculty have agreed to provide one and a half hours in which participants can ask them ANYTHING...philosophical. Come prepared to ask questions, deepen your understanding of philosophy, and munch on some tasty treats!
Dr. Itzel Garcia: Visiting Assistant Professor
Research and teaching interests: political and legal philosophy, morality as applied to the topic of law enforcement.
Dr. Shelley Wilcox, Professor and Associate Chair
Research and teaching interests: The intersections of social and political philosophy, applied ethics, feminist philosophy with a special interest in migration, global justice and urban environmental ethics.
Kyprianos Koutsokoumnis, Lecturer Faculty
Research and teaching interests: Comparative philosophy and religion, history of philosophy, cognitive capacities and development of feelings in relation to knowledge.
Dr. Carlos Montemayor, Professor and Advisor for B.A. in Philosophy: Concentration in Philosophy and Law and the Graduate Certificate in Artifical Intelligence
Research and teaching interests: Philosophy of mind and psychology, metaphysics and epistemology.
Feel free to ask general questions that they can all attempt to answer:
"How did you get interested in philosophy?" or "What is philosophy, anyway?"
Alternatively, you can ask discipline-specific questions:
"What is metaontology?"
"Why did the debate shift from talking about morality of affluence to global justice?"
Or, you can always set them up to argue:
"Characterize the analytic/continental divide."
"Do mathematical objects exist?"
In short, it's wide open, and it will be whatever we make it!
