Lecture explores role of ignorance in daily life

Have you ever dismissed ignorance as a topic unworthy of discussion? You might be surprised to learn that lack of knowledge shapes our understanding of the world.

Blake Scott, a masters student in philosophy, will explore the impact of ignorance in our daily lives in a talk titled “Ways of Not-Knowing” on Wednesday, November 23.

Scott will talk about the ways in which philosophy encourages the exploration of ignorance, and he will then apply the different ways of not knowing to the practice of argumentation.

The event is hosted by the Humanities Research Group, and will run from 4 to 6 p.m. in Vanier Hall’s Katzman Lounge. A light reception will follow the lecture. For more information, or to RSVP, you can contact hrgmail@uwindsor.ca or call 519-253-3000, ext. 3508.
