Day two of the three-day Lincoln Ethics seminar will bring Arizona State University’s Braden Allenby, professor of civil and environmental engineering and of law, and Amy Landis, associate professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, to the Hall of Philosophy.
One would be hard-pressed to argue that human rights and sustainability aren’t two areas that are in dire need of consideration in today’s society. For anyone who isn’t convinced, Arizona State University professors Daniel Rothenberg and LaDawn Haglund will be speaking at 4 p.m. today in the Hall of Philosophy to illustrate the necessity of these ideals in an ethically responsible modern world.
The lectures will kick off the 12th annual Lincoln Applied Ethics Series at Chautauqua Institution, during which professors from the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics at Arizona State visit the Institution to launch important ethical discussions. Rothenberg will speak first, Haglund will speak second and a Q-and-A session will wrap up the first day of the three-day seminar.
For the 11th year, professors and fellows from the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics at Arizona State University return to Chautauqua, this time to explore the ethics of cheating in sports, media, national security, international law and in oneself.
From 4–5:30 p.m. today through Wednesday in the Hall of Philosophy, Peter French and colleagues will foster an in-depth discussion on rules of ethics in a modern world — who makes the rules and who must abide by them.
“I think we’ve got quite a cast of characters this year,” said French, director of the Lincoln Center, Lincoln Chair in Ethics and professor of philosophy.
If there is nothing more patriotic than dissonance, Chautauquans will certainly celebrate Independence Day in good form with a series of special lectures focusing on U.S. government dysfunction that starts this afternoon. Four speakers from the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics at Arizona State University will lead the Lincoln Applied Ethics Lectures at 4 p.m. today through Wednesday at the Hall of Philosophy.
