Lecture to explore feminism and argumentation

Feminists criticize the extent to which logic and other models for argumentation eliminate important contextual elements and force specific interpretations as if they were neutral, says philosophy professor Catherine Hundleby.

She will explore the subject in a free public lecture entitled "Feminism and Argumentation" on Thursday, September 8, at 3 p.m. in the seminar room of Parker House, 105 Sunset Avenue.
