Causation lecture

The USU Philosophy Club is pleased to welcome back USU alum Mike Otteson.  Mr Otteson graduated from USU 4 years ago and is now pursuing his PhD in philosophy at the University of Kansas.

Mr Otteson will be presenting a lecture titled “The End of Humean Supremacy and the Return of Aristotle: The Rebirth of Causal Powers.”  I take it the paper will consider neo-aristotelian responses to Humean skepticism about causation.  Should be very interesting!

Thursday, January 14, 4:00-5:00 in Main 201.  All are welcome!

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
