Event Details

Joshua Landy, Professor of French, Stanford University; Director, Structured Liberal Education and Co-Director, Philosophy and Literature, Stanford; Author, How to Do Things with Fictions

Monday Night Philosophy asks Joshua Landy to answer: Why does Plato's Socrates make bad arguments? Why does Mark's Jesus speak in parables? Why are Beckett's novels so inscrutable? And why don't stage magicians even pretend to summon spirits anymore? Professor Landy will also explain why such questions are worth asking in the first place.

Time: 5:30 p.m. networking reception, 6 p.m. program, 7 p.m. book signing
