From PHD Comics!
Philosophy major Abigail Fritz was recently name the 2014 CHaSS Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Fellow of the year. A well deserved recognition, so give her a back slap next time you see her! Congratulations Ms. Fritz!
Students – I (Huenemann) will very likely be on sabbatical over 2015, January to December. This means I will not be teaching PHIL 4300 (Epistemology) in Spring 2015, which figures into the requirements for the Philosophy major. If you were planning on taking that, you should instead take PHIL 4410 (Philosophy of Mind) in Fall 2014, or plan on taking PHIL 4400 (Metaphysics) in Fall 2015. Or, if these options won’t work, please see your Philosophy advisor to work out a different arrangement.
We’re coming close to our annual induction of applicants for Phi Sigma Tau, the national honor society of students of philosophy. More details on PST here. If you are interested in joining please send an email to charlie.huenemann [at] usu [dot] edu.
Main 207, 4:30 – 6 p.m. The line up:
Abigail Fritz: “Earn Your Salsa”
Madison Moss: “Phridge Filosophy”
Justin Solum: “Superheroes and Slobs”
Alex Tarbet: “Schopenhauer’s Music”
Though – still! - if you are interested in presenting your ideas, be sure to submit an abstract to the LPCS Student Colloquium. More details here! I would personally be interested in seeing a panel of student papers on 19th-century philosophy.
