Editor's Pick: Lecture and Conference
"Unjust Social Rules: Killing and Causing Pain" and the "Bernard Gert Bioethics Conference"
Thomas Pogge of Yale University presents the Department of Philosophy's 35th Annual Francis W. Gramlich Memorial Lecture. A political philosopher, Pogge "is one of the world's most influential writers and activists concerning the problems of international justice and global poverty," says Professor of Philosophy James Moor. A reception will follow.
Pogge's talk is also the keynote address for the "Bernard Gert Bioethics Conference," a tribute to Professor of Philosophy Gert, who retires in June after 50 years on the Dartmouth faculty. Moor says, "Gert has developed his own moral theory, 'Common Morality,' which has been applied by many others, especially in the field of bioethics. His lifetime achievement in this area is extraordinarily impressive."
