Emory professor to give Transylvania’s 2006-07 Rick O’Neil Philosophy Lecture

LEXINGTON, Ky.—Why is terrorism not going away? How do we deal with this phenomenon? Do we counter terrorism with terrorism? Should we hold the moral high ground?

Emory University philosophy professor Nicholas G. Fotion will discuss these and other questions when he presents the 2006-07 Rick O’Neil Philosophy Lecture, “Terrorism: New World Disorder,” Tuesday, November 21, at 3:30 p.m., in Carrick Theater. This lecture is free and open to the public.

Fotion is the author of numerous books and articles dealing with ethics, both medical and military, as well as terrorism. Fotion has presented papers at many national conferences and given lectures at universities including the University of Melbourne in Australia, the University of Ryazan and the Golitsino Education Center in Russia, the University of KwaZulu in South Africa and the United States Military Academy at West Point.

The lecture is sponsored by Transylvania’s philosophy program and Sophia, the University’s philosophy society in honor of the late Transylvania philosophy professor Rick O’Neil.
