With support from Dean Robert Olin and the College of Arts and Sciences, Scott Hestevold established the Philosophy Today Speaker Series in 2007. This series of public talks reflects a commitment by the Department of Philosophy to make contemporary philosophical work accessible to those outside the discipline and to provide forums for addressing controversial or provocative problems. In addition to delivering a public talk, each Philosophy Today speaker conducts a professional colloquium for UA’s philosophy faculty and majors, and most also teach a class giving advanced seminar students the opportunity to address questions and objections to a prominent philosopher whose work they have studied. In 2008, Louis W. Perry of La Jolla CA inspired the Department to record and podcast the Philosophy Today public lectures. Mr. Perry’s ongoing support for the series has made possible the recording of all public lectures beginning with Ernest Sosa’s address in April, 2008. With a degree in physics from UA, Mr. Perry worked at Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory and then with the General Atomic Company. He is now a lecturer at Revelle College, University of California, San Diego, and is the author of Jefferson’s Scissors: Conflicts of Religion with Science and Democracy (2006).
