We are pleased to hold several conferences and a colloquia series each year, all of which enable distinguished philosophers to speak at UCLA. We were especially pleased to host the west coast celebration of John Cooper, the eminent philosopher and long-term friend of the department, upon his retirement from Princeton. Conferences and talks held in 2016-17 included:
- Herbert Morris Lecture in Law and Philosophy, featuring speaker Liam Murphy (NYU).
- The Moody Workshop in Medieval Logic on the topic of “The 7 Deadly Sins.”
- The John Cooper Festival, a conference honoring John Cooper of Princeton University, featuring Rachel Barney, Sarah Broadie, Zena Hitz, Gabriel Lear, Hendrik Lorenz, Jessica Moss, Alexander Nehamas, and Josh Wilburn.
- The Early Modern Philosophy Conference, featuring Janet Broughton, Lilli Alanen, Olli Koistinen, Kristin Primus, and Daniel Warren.
- The Undergraduate Philosophy Conference was held May 15 and featured Professor Aaron James as keynote speaker. You can read the papers delivered at the conference in Meditations, the undergraduate philosophy journal, at http://ucla.in/2r65TkB.
- Our recurring colloquia featuring interesting talks by a variety of philosophers from around the country. The colloquia are held on Fridays, and there is a speaker featured nearly every month. Please check our website at philosophy.ucla.edu/events for the full schedule.
