World Philosophy Day 2015

"Alienation, Isolation, and Exclusion"

A panel and discussion with Associate Professor Jason Read, Philosophy Department Chair, USM, and Professor Kathleen Wininger, Philosophy Department, USM,  was held on Thursday, November 19th at Payson Smith Hall on the Portland Campus. The discussion was free and open to the public.

 Why a Philosophy Day? As Mika Shino, Philosopher and former UNESCO  Program Specialist put it, "Philosophy helps consolidate these authentic foundations of peaceful coexistence."
