Daniel Dennett To Speak at Harvard Law School
Posted by The Situationist Staff on September 27, 2010
Professor Dennett is the Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University, as well as the co-director for the school’s Center for Cognitive Studies. His work examines the intersection of philosophy and cognitive science in relation to religion, biology, science, and the human mind. Professor Dennett has also contributed greatly to the fields of evolutionary theory and psychology.
Professor Dennett will turn a critical eye on the recent influx of work regarding the impact of neuroscience on scholarly concepts of moral and legal responsibility.
He will be speaking in Pound 101 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Free burritos will be provided!
