Event Description

Organized by the Tulane Philosophy Department, these seminars are a series of workshops where Center for Ethics Faculty Fellows and distinguished guest speakers present works in progress on ethics, political philosophy, political theory, moral psychology, the philosophy of law, and intellectual history. Papers are distributed one week beforehand to the participants who read the paper and prepare discussion questions for the presenter.

Natalia Washington is an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Utah. They are interested in the philosophy of the mind and philosophy of psychiatry which allies the critical and conceptual tools of analytic philosophy with the empirical tools of the sciences of the mind—specifically psychology and cognitive neuroscience.

Dr. Washington's research is centered around the critical project of understanding and promoting mental well-being: how do human minds work? What does it mean for our minds to work well, or badly? And, what is the nature of the discipline of ‘psychiatry’—as both science and evaluative system—that seeks to undertake this project? Find Dr. Washington and read some of their work at philpeople.
