Philosophy in a Multicultural Context

October 20, 2012 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm  |  Stevenson Fireside Lounge


Multicultural PhilosophyThis public conference investigates the relation between philosophy and its multicultural context. Are there immutable questions and universal answers regarding knowledge, values, and reality, or is philosophical inquiry bound by history, geography, and culture? Should the philosopher be responsible to the public? Four panels of local intellectuals from Google, San Francisco State University, San José State University, Stanford, UC Santa Cruz, and University of San Francisco wish to engage with a diverse audience.
