March 2012 : Dr. Ellen Wagner on Ethics

This month we take a break from our year's theme of econo-politics for a refreshing talk on philosophy, specifically ethics, more specifically ethics in ancient Greek philosophy.  UC Boulder's Dr. Ellen Wagner, an expert on Greek philosophy, will speak on "How to Lead an Excellent Human Life, No Supernatural Beings Needed!"  She says: "Aristotle designed a beautiful argument for a virtue ethics based on nothing more than human nature, in its complexity. His thinking about ethics and virtue has stood for more than 2,000 years and can inform our humanist ideas today. We'll discuss the strengths and weaknesses of what he argues."

    It was good to learn more about virtue ethics and Aristotle's philosophy generally. A more interesting and lively meeting than many we've had in my time.

    This sounds fascinating! Unfortunately, I don't think I can make it this time.

    From my one brief conversation with Ellen, I was convinced that she's pretty damn smart -- I sure go hear her -- if only it weren't on the other side of the world (from Boulder, of course).
