APS at SPEP 2011 in Philadelphia

via CC licence by Scott Baldwin

Here is a friendly reminder that the APS will be meeting at SPEP in Philadelphia on Wednesday from 3pm to 6pm, October 19th at the Sheraton Society Hill.

Because our ability to continue hosting a satellite program at SPEP every year depends upon the number of people who come to the APS at SPEP session, it is critical that as many of our members and friends of the APS attend the Wednesday session.

This year SPEP celebrates its 50th anniversary in Philadelphia and the conference will begin on Wednesday, October 19th rather than on its usual Thursday in order to accommodate an extended program.

Speakers this year will be:

Jill Gordon
Charles Dana Professor of Philosophy at Colby College
“Eros and Nostos in the Phaedo

Walter Brogan
Professor of Philosophy at Villanova University
Pathos and Logos: The Place of Virtue and Affect in Aristotle’s Ontology of Human Being”
