Brooklyn Public Philosophers: Ben Abelson

February 23, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

There’s a whole season of Brooklyn Public Philosophers ahead! Ask a Philosopher is coming back in a big way, and we have some great talks lined up for the semester – Elvira Basevich on W.E.B. Du Bois and the metaphysics of race, Christia Mercer on women in the history of philosophy, Chris Lebron on the philosophy of Black Lives Matter.
Coming up on February 23rd at 7:00 P.M., Ben Abelson (Mercy College) will be kicking things off with a talk on what science fiction can teach us about what it means to be a person (human or otherwise). You can find more details in the flyer:
As usual, we meet at the Dweck Center at the Grand Army Plaza branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. Tell your Facebook friends! Bring a date! Or at least bring a sci-fi nerd! Come prepared with your favorite example of a marginal case of a person!
