The Rock Ethics Institute


PIKSI 2007

Theme: Living Philosophy: Experience and Transformation

Combining standard texts with feminist theory, critical race theory, disability theory, and other nontraditional work, students will investigate how different human experiences have helped shape philosophical reflection from its earliest beginnings to today. Through readings, writing, visiting lecturers, and mentoring, students will learn that their own perspectives and experiences can contribute to the ongoing development of philosophy.
