What does cutting-edge research in philosophy look like? What are pressing and enduring questions it uncovers, and ways of addressing them? This event offers a taste. From enduring questions about the nature of morality and human experience, to urgent questions about how to overcome oppression, research conducted in Concordia’s Department of Philosophy reflects this diversity.
