Philip Rose

Philosopher to consider the nature of nature

Even asking the question “What is Nature?” seems to presume a distinction between the natural and the non-natural, says philosophy professor Philip Rose.

He will explore that notion in a lecture today — Wednesday, February 1 — at 3:30 p.m. in room 52-1, Chrysler Hall South. Dr. Rose will provide an overview of the idea of nature in classical thought and discuss the contrast drawn between the natural and the divine.

His lecture, part of the Philosophy Dry Run Series, is free and open to the public.
