On April 16th, the department gathered to celebrate this year’s winner of the Bingham Award and our graduating seniors. This year's Bingham medal was awarded to Garrett Patterson, who presented his excellent essay "Avoiding a Collective Action Objection to Norm-Expressivism” at the ceremony.
Hope Sample and James Fritz are this year’s winners of the Philosophy Department’s Graduate Teaching Associate Award.
On March 26, Christa Johnson successfully defended her dissertation "How to be a Nonconsequentialist: A Defense of Deontological Constraints.” Congrats, Dr. Johnson!
Our graduate students produce and publish an impressive amount of excellent philosophical material, on topics such as moral spinelessness, fictional realism, vagueness, freedom of the will, second-order logic, the goodness of non-existence, and much more.
PhD candidate James Fritz was awarded a presidential fellowship, the most prestigious award given by the Graduate School.
Many of our current graduate students (and some very recent graduates) are presenting or commenting at the three upcoming conferences of the American Philosophical Association.
