History of Modern Philosophy Group Talk (Dwight K. Lewis Jr., Central Florida)
Friday April 23, 2021, 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The History of Philosophy Group is pleased to welcome guest speaker Dwight K. Lewis Jr. Dr. Lewis is an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Central Florida. He spent the previous academic year as a Postdoctoral Mellon Fellow at Pennsylvania State University, where he began work on a manuscript about Anton Wilhelm Amo’s philosophical system, life, and legacy. His research interrogates philosophy through a historical lens; he focuses on the early modern period, Africana philosophy, the philosophical canon, and the discipline of philosophy. He attempts to live his life as James Baldwin says, “larger, freer, and more loving,” for himself and in relation to his community, both locally and globally. Larger, Freer, More Loving is also the name of his podcast with Matt LaVine.
