Rosa Terlazzo is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Kansas State University.

She is the author of several papers which have appeared in a number of highly regarded academic journals and collected volumes.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), the Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
