||Philosopher Jesse J. Prinz, associate professor of philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will deliver a lecture Friday at Cal State Fullerton titled “Emotions and Moral Values.”
Friday, April 21
||Kinesiology and Health Science Building, Room 199
||Jesse J. Prinz is the author of “Gut Reactions: A Perceptual Theory of Emotion” (2004) and “Furnishing the Mind: Concepts and Their Perceptual Basis” (2002). His research topics include concepts, emotions, consciousness, moral psychology, nature vs. nurture, aesthetics, vagueness and political psychology.
||“Jesse approaches questions in philosophy about the nature of the mind and the nature of moral and social life from a new and exciting interdisciplinary perspective,” said Amy Coplan, assistant professor of philosophy. “He has an empiricist approach, which is very unusual among philosophers of emotion.”
||A reception for Prinz is scheduled from 1:30 -2:30 p.m. in the Humanities-Social Sciences Building, Room 311.
||Lecture and reception are free and open to the public.
