Atherton delivers Dewey Lecture

Margaret Atherton has delivered the Dewey Lecture at the Central Division Meeting of the APA early this month. Please see a report on the lecture by clicking on the link below.

The American Philosophical Association invitation honors, according to the Dewey Foundation’s description, “a prominent and senior American philosopher,” and invites the philosopher in her lecture “to reflect, broadly and in an autobiographical spirit, on philosophy in America.” There are three Dewey Lectures each year, one at each of the Divisional meetings, and the three lectures are published in the APA Proceedings and Addresses. Dewey lectures sometimes contain reflections , from the point of view of the distinguished philosopher, on changes in philosophical education, or on important influences in the philosopher’s own development, or on diversity in the profession.
