Dabney Adams Hart Lecture: Rosalind Simson

The Dabney Adams Hart Distinguished Visiting Humanities Professorship Fund was established in 2003 by Madeline and Howell E. Adams, Jr. in honor of his sister, Dabney Hart '48. This fund welcomes visiting scholars to campus in a variety of topics and disciplines.  This year, the Department of Philosophy is pleased to welcome Dr. Rosalind Simson. In recent years, Dr. Simson has been working on issues at the intersection of philosophy, gender, and law — most notably, the Title IX athletic regulations and the morality of abortion. Her current research is on the scope of people’s moral duties to help others and the tension between obligations to needy people everywhere and duties to friends, family, and local community. She also enjoys teaching epistemology and metaphysics, philosophy of the arts, bioethics, and environmental ethics.

This was a super interesting and thought-provoking lecture. It further engaged with material discussed in my intro to philosphy class so I enjoyed hearing a different perspective.
