We are delighted to welcome Paul Weithman (Notre Dame) to the Practical Philosophy Workshop. Professor Weithman will be presenting a paper entitled “Legitimacy and the Project of Political Liberalism”. The meeting will be held on Friday Nov 19th from 10.30am – 12.20pm in Rosenwald 405.
The paper is available for our download page: click here and enter the password “praxis”. Professor Weithman has also very kindly made available a number of background readings, many of which (including the original version of Rawls’s “Overlapping Consensus”) are hard to find elsewhere. These background readings are strictly optional, but reading the paper itself is obviously advisable. As usual, our speaker will give a 10-15 minute summary of the main points at the beginning of the meeting.
As always, donuts and coffee will be served before the meeting.
