Meet the Author?

submitted by

How often do you have the opportunity to read a book, a journal article, and/or a New York Times Magazine column (The Ethicist) AND meet the author to learn more and/or ask your questions?

On Thursday, March 5th, New York University Professor of Law and Philosophy, Professor Anthony Appiah, will be coming to Augsburg. He is the author of numerous books, including Cosmopolitanism; The Honor Code: How Moral Revolutions Happen; As If: Idealization and Ideals; and his most recent, The Lies That Bind: Rethinking Identity.

Over the course of the day on March 5th, you will have several opportunities to interact with Professor Appiah. To begin, he will meet with a small group of students from 9:25-10:25am (space is still available for students if you are interested in having your class come). Next, he is the featured speaker for the Batalden Seminar in Applied Ethics at 11am in Hoversten Chapel. A book signing will follow.

In the afternoon, there will be “A Discussion with Kwame Anthony Appiah” 2-3:15pm (open to faculty and staff). Please RVSP by February 18th at to indicate you are interested in attending this event. Feel free to contact Bibiana Koh if you have any questions:
