World Philosophy Day at KU

Dr. Thomas Pogge

Pogge’s work on global poverty is changing the world. See him tonight at 7pm in Boehm 145

The United Nations celebrates philosophy the third Thursday of each November

Tonight Kutztown will hear from a roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-things-done kind of philosopher: Thomas Pogge, Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs at Yale University.

A prime mover of the Health Impact Fund (whose advisory board includes last year’s KU Philosophy Day speaker Noam Chomsky), Pogge has sought constructive ways to put his robust sense of justice—he studied under John Rawls, after all—to work on the effects of global poverty.

Pogge speaks tonight, Nov. 13 at 7 pm in Boehm 145 on the topic, “World Poverty: Explanations and Responsibilities.”

Want to learn more about his work? Rohrbach Library has a display up on our Second Floor featuring Pogge books from our collection as well as items from our databases. Stuff like this.
