2/25/2016 - CLA Hale Lecture Series
February 25, 2016
College of Liberal ArtsHale Lecture SeriespresentsJon TresanPhilosophy, University of RochesterWednesday, February 25, 20163:30-5:00Liberal Arts HallRoom A205 (Basement Level)Motivational internalists say, roughly, that there's no moral thinking without moral caring. For example, an internalist might say that one cannot genuinely think that one ought to do something without being motivated to do it. If true, internalism seems to reveal something profoundly interesting about the nature of moral thinking. However, most philosophers now reject it as false because of apparent counterexamples: people who seem to have moral views but be totally unmoved by them (e.g., some psychopaths). Professor Tresan defends a fall-back position, which concedes that individuals can indeed be totally unmoved by their moral thoughts, but insists that their moral thinking is necessarily parasitic on the moral thinking of those who are moved. He defends two claims about this fall-back position. First, it is far more plausible than standard versions of internalism. Second, what it reveals about the nature of moral thinking is just as profoundly interesting as what those standard versions would reveal if they were true.(Thursday, February 25th, 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM - Liberal Arts Hall, Room A205, Basement Level )

Thursday, March 31st4-5:30 pmEastman Hall01-2000The CLA Hale Lecture SeriespresentsRyan JohnsonElon CollegeDepartment of PhilosophyThe Importance of the Philosopher's BeardIn Ancient Rome, how a philosopher lived his or her life was often considered to be more important than what a philosopher said or wrote. Back then, a philosopher was not someone who wrote books or papers that were disconnected from the conduct of a life. Rather, a philosopher embodied a form of life that expressed certain goals, values, motivations, and perspectives. One was identified as a Stoic, for example, because he or she lived a Stoic life. The philosophical scene of ancient Rome was thus characterized by a vibrant community of various ways of living, e.g., as a Stoic, as an Epicurean, as a Skeptic, etc. This talk will attempt to breathe new life into that ancient practice of philosophy and thereby allow us to re-conceive and re-evaluate the contemporary philosophical scene.Interpreters provided upon request subject to availability.Please make your request TODAY by going to Access.rit.edu.(Thursday, March 31st, 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM - Eastman Hall, 01-2000 )

5/12/2016 - CLA Hale Lecture Series
May 12, 2016
Thursday, May 12th4-5:30 pmEastman Hall01-2000The CLA Hale Lecture SeriespresentsKatie ShiltonUniversity of MarylandCollege of Information Studies"I'm very concerned regarding the privacy of my users:" Influences on Privacy as a Professional Practice in Mobile Application DevelopmentPrivacy is a critical challenge for mobile application development. Mobile applications are easy to build and distribute, and can collect diverse personal data. US policy approaches to data protection in the mobile ecosystem rely on privacy by design: approaches that encourage developers to proactively implement best-practice privacy features to protect sensitive data. But we don't know what factors motivate developers to implement privacy features when faced with disincentives such as longer development timelines, markets for personal data, and tensions between data protection and data-enabled services. This project begins to identify these factors by investigating how mobile developers talk about and deal with privacy challenges. Interviews with developers and analysis of posts on developer forums reveal that developers are actively grappling with privacy issues. This talk will describe how developers define and legitimate privacy, and describe how knowledge of how to approach privacy problems is disseminated. Understanding the development of privacy as a professional practice can help us shape better guidelines for privacy by design, and broach challenges to the widespread adoption of privacy by design principles.FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLICInterpreters provided upon request subject to availability.Please make your request TODAY by going to Access.rit.edu.(Thursday, May 12th, 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM - Eastman Hall, 01-2000 )
