Lecture to consider philosopher of pragmatism

The Centre for Research in Reasoning, Argumentation and Rhetoric presents Nathan Houser delivering his free public lecture “Peirce on Practical Reasoning” at 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, in the seminar room, Parker House.

Dr. Houser will consider the work of American philosopher Charles S. Peirce, discussing practical reasoning in the context of Peirce’s general conception of reasoning as a species of controlled conduct and his broad view of normative logic.

A professor emeritus of philosophy at Indiana University at Indianapolis and a senior fellow of the Institute of American Thought, Houser is editor of The Essential Peirce, and general editor of the projected 30-volume Writings of Charles S. Peirce.

On the morning of Friday, May 4, he will lead a seminar on Peirce’s pragmatism; please contact the Department of Philosophy for details.

Parker House is located at 105 Sunset Avenue.
