2011-2012 Symposium on Living Philosophers: K. Anthony Appiah

Kwame Anthony Appiah

Laurance S. Rockefeller University Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University


The 2011-2012 Symposium on Living Philosophers will focus on the work of Kwame Anthony Appiah. Professor Appiah has made significant contributions to our understanding of the nature of language, racial identity, political and moral relationships and philosophical methodology. Siena students will critically examine these contributions, as well as develop and defend their own positions on these topics. The Symposium will culminate in a spring panel discussion where students will present their research projects and discuss them with Professor Appiah.
