USF Lecture to Discuss Social Ontology

March 29, 2018

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The University of Saint Francis School of Liberal Arts and Sciences invites the community to the next lecture in the 2017-2018 spring lecture series. Dr. Vincent Wargo will deliver the lecture, “An Introduction to Social Ontology,” on Tuesday, April 24 at 7 p.m. at the Historic Woman’s Club, 826 Ewing Street. Guests are asked to please use the Wayne Street entrance to the Woman’s Club for easier access to the third floor.

Human beings live in two worlds, one that is natural and the other that is a construction of our ideas and practices. Dr. Wargo, USF assistant professor of philosophy, will explore what philosophers have said about this topic over the centuries, and point at what we might expect to see in the future.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Angela Springer at aspringer@sf.edu.
