University of Pennsylvania's Dr. Pawelski, who has a Ph.D in Philosophy and wrote a new book, "The Dynamic Individualism of William James," is giving a talk in NYC on William James today, Friday, Feb. 1
from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM at the NY Pragmatist Forum. He's a terrific speaker. I thought you'd all be interested in attending. Here are the details:
NY Pragmatist Forum.
Fordham University at Lincoln Center -
Lowenstein Building 708
Columbus (9th) Avenue at 60th Street
Friday, Feb. 1
5:00 - 7:00 PM
Pawelski analyzes James' rich and complex thought through the examination of one of its key elements, individualism. Individualism is a theme that runs throughout James' writings and that underlies his seminal views of freedom, society, government, psychology, education, religion, pragmatism, and metaphysics.
The lineup for the evening also includes talks by Hugh McDonald, New York City College of Technology/CUNY on ?Nietzsche: Existentialist or Pragmatist?? as well as Daniel Finke, Fordham University on "Is Pragmatic Truth Nietzsche's 'All Too Human' Truth?"
Dr. Pawelski's current research interests include the philosophical underpinnings of positive psychology, the philosophy and psychology of character development, and the development, application, and assessment of interventions in positive psychology. At Penn's Positive Psychology Center, he directs the Master of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) Program and is a Special Advisor to the Positive Psychology Steering Committee.
