Keeping on the Sunny Side: William James on Healthy-Minded and Sick Souls

When:
Thursday, October 24, 2013 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
Where:
Derrick Hall Dialogue Room 111
Description:

The Dialogue Class, Sophists and Sages, will be the speakers.

Join Texas State University instructors and special guests for a variety of discussions centered on the topic of “Minds Matter: Exploring Mental Health and Illness” as part of the yearly Common Experience project. The series is free to attend and open to the public. Anyone may join the discussions at any time during the series.

The Department of Philosophy teaches some 2,500 introductory students each fall and spring semester. The Dialogue Series supplements their instruction, as it allows them to apply their classroom study of the principles of good thinking and ethical conduct to such controversial issues. For over twelve years, the series has provided a forum for the lively exchange and critical evaluation of diverse ideas. This series has grown from a few presentations a month during long semesters to four or five each week during most of the fall and spring semesters and during one summer session.
