The role of 'good' in creating a liberal attitude
Oct. 1, 2002
KALAMAZOO -- Are a liberal's values a result of what the majority views as "good"?
Using political theorist John Rawls' idea of "the burden of judgment," a Tulane University philosopher will visit Western Michigan University to discuss how the attitudes of a liberal might be conceived as a result of what society deems as honorable, in regards to religion, economics and culture.
The talk by Dr. Bruce Brower, associate professor of philosophy at Tulane, begins the Center for the Study of Ethics in Society Lecture Series Thursday, Oct. 10, at 7:30 p.m. His presentation, "Skepticism and the Grounds of Liberty," is set for Room 204 of the Bernhard Center.
Other presentations scheduled in the fall lecture series include:
