Our Next Visiting Speaker November 17 - Dr. Christian Miller

Dr. Christian Miller, A.C. Reid Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Character Project at Wake Forest University, will be giving a talk in our department on Friday, November 17. His talk, titled “Generosity: A Surprisingly Neglected Virtue,” will be given from 2-4pm in 175 McCain Hall. His abstract is as follows:

There have only been three articles in mainstream philosophy journals going back at least to the 1970s on generosity. In this paper, I hope to draw attention to this neglected virtue. By building on what work has already been done, and trying to advance that discussion along several different dimensions, I hope that others will take a closer look at this important and surprisingly complex virtue. More specifically, I formulate four important necessary conditions for what is involved in possessing the virtue of generosity.

We hope to see you there!
