Kant Lecture Series with Kwame Anthony Appiah

 

 

The Kant Lecture series is an annual tradition of the Stanford Philosophy Department. It takes place over the course of three days and includes two lectures and a discussion seminar, which are presented by a distinguished philosopher. Kwame Anthony Appiah is the speaker for 2019 on the topic 'Ethics, Political Philosophy, Responsibility'.

When it comes to the most pressing social issues of the day, Kwame Anthony Appiah is a touchstone of reason and inclusivity. Asking—and answering—probing questions on morality, ethnicity, and religion as “The Ethicist” for The New York Times Magazine, Appiah is a fearless, lucid arbiter. He demonstrated this in his BBC Reith Lectures on the modern complexities of Creed, Culture, Color, and Countryand in his book, The Lies That Bind, named one of the 50 Notable Works of the Year by The Washington Post
