Cross-Cultural Philosophical Variations
Professor Flanagan presented this lecture at Tulane University on January 27, 2017
Professor Flanagan is the James B. Duke Professor of Philosophy at Duke University where he also holds appointments in Psychology and Neurobiology. He is the author of ten books, including Consciousness Reconsidered (MIT Press, 1992), Self Expressions: Mind, Morals and the Meaning of Life (Oxford University Press, 1996), and, most recently, The Geography of Morals: Varieties of Moral Possibility (Oxford University Press).
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.
