Owen Flanagan at SKKU SICEP

Sungkyun Institute for Confucian Studies and East Asian Philosophy (SICEP) welcomes:

Owen Flanagan (Duke University)

Please join us at Sungkyunkwan University’s International Hall 9B114 on Friday, February 15 at 4-6 PM for his talk entitled, “Truth and Sanity.”

This talk concerns false beliefs that might be good for us, including ideas of oneness inspired by East and South Asian traditions, but also general religious beliefs, positive illusions, and metaphysical hallucinations. William Clifford and William James’ views about the ethics of belief will be noted and discussed but I will present a new line of argument about what it might be good to believe.

If you have questions or would like a copy of the gist (either in English and Korean), please contact WANG Hwa Yeong (femiconphil@gmail.com) or HONG Jee Eun (skyis@skku.edu).
