Michael Rosen (Harvard University) lecture in Prague

The Centre for Political philosophy, Ethics and Religion and Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies invites you to public lecture „Why Does Philosophy Have a History?“ given by prof. Michael Rosen (Harvard University)

Date and time: 22nd February, 5 p.m.
Place: room 217, ÚFAR FF UK, nám. Jana Palacha 2

Quine is supposed to have said that two sorts of people are drawn to the study of philosophy: those interested in the history of philosophy and those interested in philosophy. Yet the history of philosophy is itself a philosophical problem – in fact, one of its deepest – for it challenges the very idea that philosophy is rational. Can the challenge be met? What sort of a history does philosophy have – and what sort of a history ought it to have?

Before the lecture prof. Rosen will be awarded with a memorial medal of Charles University for supporting free development of Czech philosophy and culture in the times of communist totalitarian era.
