Buley Library

First Thursdays: an interdisciplinary forum for Southern faculty in the arts, humanities, and social sciences to present and discuss new scholarship, with special emphasis on emerging topics, methodologies, and areas of research in the 21st century.

November 2: Dr. Chelsea Harry (Philosophy Department) on "Aristotle and the Possibility for Non-human Animal Flourishing"

Previous attempts to locate non-human animal flourishing in Aristotle have begun with Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, providing a negative account for the ways in which non-humans might approximate human flourishing. In my talk, I present an alternative approach, locating the possibility for non-human animal flourishing in Aristotle's biological and psychological works.

All faculty are encouraged and welcome to attend.
