Continental Philosophy Group Talk (John Russon, Guelph)
Friday March 8, 2019, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
One of five departmental research interest groups, the Continental Philosophy Group works in the traditions of textual interpretation of human consciousness, phenomenology, and post-structuralist critical theory, among other related traditions of thought.
The group welcomes John Russon, an alumnus of our department (PhD, 1990), now professor of philosophy at the University of Guelph. A specialist in continental philosophy, Professor Russon’s recent work had dealt with the formation of personal identity and with the issues that structure our meaningful involvement in everyday life. He has also published on Hegel, phenomenology (especially on Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger and Derrida) and ancient philosophy (especially Plato and Aristotle).
A talk abstract and title will be posted closer to the date of this event.
