The next Educational SIG for Philosophy will be on March 3rd at 10am at SHC at 1953 W Grant Rd
The following lectures will be presented:
Husserl and Phenomenology
This lecture focuses on Husserlian phenomenology as a response to positivism and historicism.
Edmund Husserl was opposed to relativism, skepticism, historicism, and positivism because they
attempted to explain mind in terms of nature rather than nature by way of consciousness.
Dewey's Critique of Traditional Philosophy
John Dewey's version of pragmatism represented the American values of democracy, progressivism, and
optimism Dewey was skeptical of truth, believing that what we call "truth" is simply what works best for us
at the time. Man's moral ends are not eternal truths but are formed through customs and habits that
change over time.
Socializing over lunch/breakfast will follow about noon.
