Kadish Workshop in Law, Philosophy, and Political Theory: Dhananjay Jagannathan, Columbia University
Friday, September 15, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Kadish Workshop in Law, Philosophy, and Political Theory welcomes Dhananjay Jagannathan, Columbia University, who will be discussing his paper “A Defense of Aristotelian Justice.”
Dhananjay Jagannathan is an assistant professor of philosophy and Director of Graduate Studies of the Classical Studies Program at Columbia University. His scholarship has focused mainly on the ethics and political philosophy of Aristotle. His current book project is Aristotle’s Practical Epistemology, which situates Aristotle’s account of practical wisdom (phronēsis) within his broader theory of ethical and political knowledge.
About the Workshop:
This course is a workshop for discussing works in progress in moral, political, and legal theory. The workshop creates a space for students to engage directly with philosophers, political theorists, and legal scholars working on normative questions toward the goal of fostering critical thinking about concepts of value and developing analytical thinking and writing skills. Another aim is to bring together people from different disciplines and perspectives who have strong normative interests or who speak to issues philosophers and theorists should know something about.
The theme for the Fall 2023 workshop is “Current Work on the History of Political, Legal, and Moral Philosophy.”
