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.
