The Phronesis Program in Politics and Ethics hosts a variety of lectures and visiting faculty. In 2013, the program hosted Walter Sinnott-Armstrong, the Chauncey Stillman Professor of Practical Ethics in the Department of Philosophy and the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University. Sinnott-Armstrong discussed the responsibility psychopaths may have for their actions. Phronesis also hosted the controversial Charles Murray, who discussed the race and equality in American life.
One event planned for 2014 is a talk by Sister Helen Prejean, Roman Catholic nun and outspoken activist for the abolition of the death penalty. Updates on this and other Phronesis events will be posted as they become available.
