Page Background

The philosophy program has changed its home department from

Languages and Linguistics to History. Along with this change

came a move into East Hall, where we are now comfortably

tucked in on the third floor.

Two faculty members joined the department:

Justin Moss

(Ph.D., Nebraska, 2012) teaches mainly in Ethics

in the position of lecturer.

Joe Tinguely

(Ph.D., New School, 2012) teaches mainly in the

history of philosophy in the position of assistant professor.

Dr. Moss has a book review forthcoming in the journal

Ethics, Policy, and Environment. The review is of Gary Varner’s

recent book “Personhood, Ethics, and Animal Cognition:

Situating Animals in Hare’s Two-Level Utilitarianism.”

Dr. Tinguely published an article in

Philosophy and Rhetoric

titled “The Implicit Affection between Kantian Judgment and

Aristotelian Rhetoric.”

Several of our recent graduates were admitted to the law

schools of their choice.

Two of our recent graduates received special commendation

for their successful completion of an Honors Thesis.

In spring 2015 we hosted a one-day student conference

with a keynote address on Kierkegaard by George Connell of

Concordia College, Moorhead, Minnesota. We will have a two-

day conference in October in honor of the 2,600th birthday

of science with a keynote lecture by Dr. Alan Love of the

University of Minnesota.

In his Environmental Ethics and Biomedical Ethics classes,

Moss has instituted the practice of poster presentations that

encourage students to publicly present their ethical reasoning on

issues of importance for medicine and environmental practice.
