Philosophers in the Midst of History

  • The projects of philosophers do not occur in a historical and cultural vacuum, and understanding the situations they were living in illuminates their philosophical projects and works.

  • February 1 at 6:00 PM = Socrates, The Ancient World, and Philosophical Lives
  • May 3 at 6:00 PM = Bonaventure, The Franciscans, and the Middle Ages

  • November 1 at 6:00 PM = Iris Murdoch, Metaphysics, Morals, and Narrative
