Our aim is to advance the interest of philosophy within our own department and throughout the campus as well. Our activities include presentations by students, book readings (during the summer), watching movies, and fundraisers. We meet every Wednesday at 5pm in PSYC bldg 105.

Dear colleagues,

I would like to announce the formation of a research group dedicated
to the investigation of theoretical questions in philosophy of physics.

The first meeting will be held Friday March 13th at noon (Worrell Hall

After a brief presentation and discussion about the research group's
goals, Crisol Escobedo, one our graduate students, will present and
lead a discussion on Hilgevoord's article "Time in Quantum
Mechanics." I have attached it and another relevant article as pdf


Schedule for Talks - Thursday, September 18, 2008
We have the new schedule of talks taking place this semester.

Local Philosopher Publishes Book - Saturday, August 9, 2008
Manuela Gomez (she gave us a talk last year) has just published a book about Argentinian philosopher Jose Ingenieros (whose works have never been translated to English) where she links his ideas to those of Ralph Waldo Emerson. In a wider perspective, some gaps between Latin American philosophy and pragmatism are bridged.

Rediscovering the Philosophical Importance of Jose Ingenieros: A Bridge Between Two Worlds is being published by VDM Verlag in 12 countries. Manuela was born in Cd. Juarez and she obtained her M.A. in Philosophy from Texas A&M. Yesterday, August 8th, she held a book presentation at the Centro Cultural Paso del Norte in Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua where professors, students, and spectators alike gathered to witness Manuela's first book. The panel of about 5 professors, including Manuela herself, gave their take on the book itself. Some placed the book in its historical context, while others praised Manuela's achievement. There was an overall sentiment of joy and inspiration; one audience member commenting during the Q&A segment that he believed that girls should look up to Manuela in being well educated. He went on to say that this is the kind of people Cd. Juarez needs, but that he was sure that there were already many Manuelas in this city; we just need to polish them.

Martha Nussbaum - Wednesday, May 7, 2008
Bill Moyers interviews Martha Nussbaum, the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law and Ethics at University of Chicago here

Leiter on admission - Tuesday, April 22, 2008
Here is a nice thread on Leiter's blog regarding the admissions process.

70's Warren-Flew Debate - Friday, April 4, 2008
This is an interesting debate that took place in 1976 on the existence of God. Antony Flew, a notorious atheist-recently-turned-deist, argues in favor of atheism while Thomas B. Warren argues against it. It is revealing how the loudest of the two has the weakest arguments.

Interview with Daniel Dennett - Monday, March 31, 2008
New Mexico/West Texas Philosophical Society - Saturday, March 22, 2008
The 59th annual meeting will be held on April 4-6, 2008 at UTEP. More info to come.
