Classics of Modern Philosophy
A reading group dedicated to works of philosophy that has proved influential beyond the world of academic philosophy.
First published in 1981, Alasdair MacIntyre's After Virtue has proved one of the most influential works of moral philosophy of the last century and it continues to provoke and inspire readers from across the academic disciplines and outside of the academy. The book offers both a diagnosis of the moral confusions of modernity and a bold case for the contemporary relevance of Aristotle's ethical thought. The discussion will be led by Peter Wicks, co-editor of The MacIntyre Reader (University of Notre Dame Press, 2018).
Open to undergraduates.
Space is limited; for more information please contact Peter Wicks.
