We warmly welcome Hugo Strandberg, the newest member of our team. Hugo is associate professor of philosophy at Åbo Akademi University, Finland. Originally he comes from Sweden, and he earned his doctorate at Uppsala University in 2005. His previous research mostly concerns moral philosophy, particularly moral psychology, and philosophy of religion. At the Centre his research will focus on the concept of forgiveness, as a way of entering discussions in moral philosophy and political philosophy from a different angle."
This week on the Centre's research seminar, Joseph Wiinikka-Lydon will talk about "Moral Injury and the Turn to Theology." All are welcome!
This week on research seminar, our very own Michael Campbell will deliver a talk on "The Silence of the Moral Senses". The seminar will, as always, take place at 4pm in the "Alpha" room, on the 5th floor of the G building at the university campus.
Everyone is invited to a guest lectture by Luke Brunning.
It will take place at 16:00 on Wednesday, December 6th. The topic of Brunning's lecture will be "Is Exclusive Love Valuable?"
During the exam period (mid-January to mid-February) a reading group will meet in our Centre every Wednesday during at 4pm to discuss a different text every week. There will be no common theme to the reading group, so everyone may feel free to show up any random week and not bother whether (s)he has read the previous texts.
The first meeting is on Wednesday, Jan 17, in the main office of the Centre (G building, 6th floor).
