    The Gordon Lecture Series welcomes Keith Miller for a lecture, "The Future of Human/Robot Interactions.
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Gordon Lecture Series welcomes Keith Miller for a lecture, "The Future of Human/Robot Interactions. As machines gain sophistication, we face societal challenges. We have to start asking important questions now so we will be ready for machines of the future. Examples of those questions are: Can there ever be a machine so advanced that we will consider it a (non-human) person? Should we invest in making robots imitate humans? Should we outlaw the practice? Cyborgs are humans with artificial parts. Is there some point at which a cyborg has so many artificial parts that it ceases being a person? Miller earned his Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Iowa. He taught computer science at The College of William and Mary and the University of Illinois at Springfield until his retirement in 2013. During that time, he also served as a consultant for several software companies and an expert witness on issues of intellectual property and software quality.He is now a member of the College of Education at the University of Missouri, St. Louis, working with the St. Louis Science Center and other partners to inspire students from K to grey to become engaged with science, technology, engineering and math. Dr. Miller’s research areas include computer ethics, online education, and software testing.

    The Department of Philosophy welcomes Sam Wheeler presenting a Titus Hepp Lecture, "Pluralist Essentialism: How Davidson, Aristotle and Kripke Are All Partly Right."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Philosophy welcomes Sam Wheeler presenting a Titus Hepp Lecture, "Pluralist Essentialism: How Davidson, Aristotle and Kripke Are All Partly Right." Donald Davidson’s externalism and principle of charity imply that he should have been a kind of essentialist, agreeing with Aristotle, Kripke and others that there are de remodal truths about entities. Given that, as Davidson said, “sameness is always relative to a predicate,” entities should be regarded as articulations of what is, albeit articulations that are not given, but imposed in order to allow us to make inferences that depend on sub-sentential structure. Just as space does not come divided into feet as opposed to meters, so the world does not come divided into just one set of kinds of object. Dr. Sam Wheeler III is professor of Philosophy at the University of Connecticut. He writes in philosophy of language, metaphysics, ethics, deconstruction, and ancient philosophy. He published “Neo-Davidsonian Metaphysics” in 2013 and is currently working on a book on modality.
