Trevor Pearce, Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte will give a lecture: "Experimental Ethics: Pragmatism, Environment, and Social Reform."
Abstract: This lecture will discuss how a group of philosophers and social scientists associated with pragmatism -- John Dewey, Jane Addams, George Herbert Mead, and W. E. B. Du Bois -- drew on biological ideas to develop an experimental-evolutionary approach to ethics and social reform in the late nineteenth century.
Presented by The New School for Social Research (NSSR).
