    Philip Kitcher Lecture

    Philip Kitcher, Columbia University

    Philip Kitcher is the John Dewey Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University. An eminent philosopher, he is the author of twelve books on science, literature, and music, including Abusing Science: The Case Against Creationism (1982), The Lives to Come: The Genetic Revolution and Human Possibilities (1997), Science, Truth, and Democracy (2003), Living with Darwin: Evolution, Design, and the Future of Faith (2006), Science in a Democratic Society, The Ethical Project (2011), and Life After Faith: The Case for Secular Humanism (The Terry Lectures) (forthcoming October, 2014).  Concerning himself mostly with the philosophy of science, he has also had influence in the study of the ethical and political constraints on scientific research, the evolution of altruism and morality, and the possible conflict between science and religion. Professor Kitcher was the first recipient of the Prometheus Prize awarded by the American Philosophical Association for "lifetime contribution to expanding the frontiers of research in philosophy and science." He is also the winner of many other awards, most recently the Award for Distinguished Service to the Columbia Core Curriculum, the Lenfest Distinguished Faculty Award from Columbia University, the Lannan Foundation Notable Book Award (given for Living with Darwin), and the Friend of Darwin Award (given by the National Committee on Science Education).

    This event is open to the public.
