Symposium on art and theosophy

April 16, 2014

Curious students may find this of intellectual interest. This evening (Wednesday) there is an opening at the Art Museum on campus featuring visual art and music related to theosophy, a strange late 19th-/early 20th-century movement composed of elements from philosophy, mystical religion, science (sort of), and other fringy things like seances and alchemy. Here is a link to the opening reception, which will feature a performance by the Fry Street Quartet, and here is a link to the schedule of a symposium on the next day, Thursday, in case you want to learn even more!

Advice about classes next year

April 9, 2014

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.

Retraction: FLASH! Philosophy in ON!!!!

Abigail Fritz: “Earn Your Salsa”
Madison Moss: “Phridge Filosophy”
Justin Solum: “Superheroes and Slobs”

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.
