New Inter-institutional Seminar on Comparative Philosophy
On behalf of the Columbia Society for Comparative Philosophy, I'd like to invite you to participate in a new Columbia University Seminar on 'comparative philosophy.' The impetus for this new Seminar came out of Mind & Reality, and its purpose is to provide a forum for ongoing conversation.
Thanks to the efforts of outgoing Chair Gary Tubb (Indic Studies), the new Seminar has funding to host monthly meetings with guest speakers from around the world. Presently, we are looking for both *new members* and *guest speakers.* If you think you might like to participate (and/or know someone who may), please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Our new incoming chair is Mark Siderits (Philosophy).
Seminar membership is open to scholars from a variety of disciplines and institutions. In conjunction with the student group on 'comparative philosophy,' the two organizations comprise the 'Columbia Society for Comparative Philosophy.'
Please take a minute to look at our website.
In an effort to accommodate busy schedules and long distance participation, we've launched a special password-protected weblog that will enable members to download audio podcasts, essays, and take-part in online discussions (much like the ones we had for Mind & Reality). So don't worry if you can't attend meetings--you can still participate online.
