The Berry Lectures in Public Philosophy

With the generous support of the Berry Fund, The Vanderbilt Philosophy Department is sponsoring a series of lectures in public philosophy. These talks are free and open to the public. Each lecture features a Vanderbilt Philosophy faculty member speaking on a topic of perennial importance. The lectures are designed to be accessible and engaging to a general audience. Each lecture will be short (30 minutes at most), after which the floor will be open for questions and discussion. The aim of the series is to stimulate philosophical reflection and conversation.
