History of Modern Philosophy Group Talk (Michael Hickson, Trent)

Friday May 4, 2018, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

The History of Modern Philosophy Group is pleased to welcome guest speaker Michael Hickson, assistant professor at Trent University. Prof. Hickson’s recent research has focused on the history of 17-century philosophy, especially Descartes, Bayle, skepticism, and the problem of evil. Increasingly, his research includes both historical and contemporary issues related to conscience and toleration.

The title and abstract of Prof. Hickson’s talk will be posted shortly.

One of five departmental Research Interest Groups, the History of Philosophy Group is home to the History of Modern Philosophy Research Group, which focuses on the period, roughly, from Descartes to Kant.
