Princeton philospher gives Shipka lecture
Kwame Anthony Appiah, the Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University, speaks at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 20, in the Chestnut Room of Kilcawley Center at Youngstown State University.
The lecture, free and open to the public, is part of the Dr. Thomas and Albert Shipka Speaker Series of the YSU Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies. For more information, call 330-941-3448.
Appiah’s presentation is titled “The Honor Code” and explores the long-neglected engine of reform. Examining moral revolutions in the past – and campaigns against abhorrent practices today – Appiah shows that appeals to reason, morality or religion aren’t enough to usher in reform.
Appiah is one of Foreign Policy’s Top 100 public intellectuals and author of numerous books, including “In My Father’s House,” “Cosmopolitanism,” “The Ethics of Identity” and “The Honor Code.” He is a post-modern Socrates who asks profound questions about identity and ethics in a world where the sands of race, ethnicity, religion and nationalism continue to realign and reform before our eyes.
A reception with Appiah will follow the lecture in the Ohio Room of Kilcawley Center.
