2011 New Crop Symposium

All undergraduates who submit an essay for the 2011 New Crop Philosophy Prize, along with interested undergraduates, graduates, and faculty members, are invited to attend the New Crop Symposium on March 16 and 17, 2011.

On the first day, the Symposium Visitor, Professor Samuel Scheffler, of New York University, will give a seminar on one or more themes from his work. This session is for undergraduates only.

The second day will be devoted to the undergraduate essays, and is open to all interested participants. Professor Scheffler will present awards and comment on the winning essays, with time left for student responses and broader discussion. The Symposium will conclude with a reception in Howison 301.

Essays will comment on, criticize, extend, or present an alternative to some position or argument in the work of our 2011 New Crop Symposium Visitor.
