Justin Solum, a recent philosophy grad, will be visiting USU and presenting a lecture on “action theory” – this is where psychology hooks up with human actions we regard as morally praiseworthy or blameworthy. His talk is entitled “Deviant Causal Chains in Action Theory,” and he’s always a fun guy to talk philosophy with. It is scheduled for next Tuesday, December 6th, 3:00 p.m., in Main 227. All are welcome!
