The Nature of Animate Beings

The Great Conversation Continues with Dr. Gary Rosenkrantz

Drawing inspiration from Aristotle’s writings on living things, Prof. Rosenkrantz will attempt to construct a definition of what it is to be a living thing or animate being.  The proposed definition is intended to cover all possible forms of life.

Thursday, September 20th, Faculty Center, 5:00 pm

The Great Conversation is sponsored by the Philosophy Dept and Phi Sigma Tau and offers an opportunity for students and faculty of all disciplines to join us in philosophical inquiry.
