Idioms of Ethical Life: A Conference in Honor of the Work of Dr. Dennis J. Schmidt

When: from Oct 28, 2016 8:00 AM to Oct 29, 2016 5:00 PM
Where: Pasquerilla Spiritual Center, University Park, PA 16802

The Idioms of Ethical Life is an invitation to think with the work of philosopher, Dennis Schmidt. Schmidt has argued that the transformative character of thinking that constitutes the ethical is a matter of the idiom, that is, it is worked out in the singularity of situations. For Schmidt, ethics belongs to the very nature of thinking, properly understood. Dennis Schmidt, who was actively involved in the Rock Ethics Institute, is now Professor of Philosophy at Western Sydney University. This conference brings together some of the leading philosophers in the area of continental philosophy to reflect on the importance of his contributions to the profession.
