Wisdom Workshop at Fordham University

The Fordham University Philosophy Department presents a

Wisdom Workshop

Friday, April 17th
2009
Fordham University
Lincoln Center Campus
New York City

 

 

Despite the fact that philosophia is literally the love of wisdom, contemporary philosophers have given limited attention to the concept of wisdom.  This one-day workshop aims to revive and promote discussion of this ancient notion by exploring the ethical and epistemological dimensions of wisdom, from both historical and contemporary perspectives.

11:00 am –12:45 pm
Gabriel Richardson Lear (University of Chicago)
"Aristotle on Leisure, Flourishing, and Wise Deliberation"
Respondent: Katja Vogt (Columbia University)

2:00 – 3:45 pm
Charles Larmore (Brown University)
"Cleverness, Knowledge, and Wisdom"
Respondent: Valerie Tiberius (University of Minnesota)

4:00–5:45 pm
Ernest Sosa (Rutgers University)
"Wisdom and Virtue Epistemology"
Respondent: John Greco (St. Louis University)


The workshop is free and open to the public.  Talks will be held on the 12th Floor of the Lowenstein Building, 113 W. 60th St., at Fordham's Lincoln Center Campus in New York City.  For information, contact Allan Hazlett at ahazlett@fordham.edu or visit our website at www.cassetteradio.com/hazlett/wisdom/
