Philosophy Department Welcomes Guest Lecturer Kevin Sharpe

Persons are Animals Too!

In fact, maybe they're ONLY animals...

The Philosophy Department--in conjunction with the Philosophy Club and Phi Sigma Tau--is happy to present

Dr. Kevin Sharpe (St. Cloud State University, MN)

who will discuss the topic of Animalism. Animalism is the view that human persons, such as you and I, are all and only animals: biological organisms that belong to the species Homo Sapiens.

This position has curious and significant implications for a theory of human nature. Dr. Sharpe will discuss the assumptions upon which this theory is made, and provide objections and responses for both sides of the argument. His goal is to try and demonstrate how most of the common reasons for rejecting animalism fail.

Please come for an enlightening and controversial discussion!
