Philosophy Talk examines the year that was 2015

62704.jpg

What happened in 2015 that challenged our assumptions and made us think in new ways?

A new year offers an opportunity to reflect on the significant events of the previous year. But what ideas and events took shape over the past twelve months that have prompted us to question our assumptions and to think about things in new ways? Join John, Ken, and their special guests as they celebrate the examined year with a philosophical look back at the year that was 2015:

The Year in Campus Culture Wars with Kate Manne from Cornell University, co-author of "When Free Speech Becomes a Political Weapon"
The Year in Refugees and Migration with Beverly Crawford from UC Berkeley, author of Power and German Foreign Policy: Embedded Hegemony in Europe
The Year in Science and Climate Change with Allen Thompson from Oregon State University, editor of The Oxford Handbook of Environmental Ethics (forthcoming)

Sunday 1/03 at 10 am and Tuesday 1/05 at 12 noon.
