Changing My Mind

In this talk I will focus on several areas in which, over the course of a number of years, I have changed my mind. One might wonder if that is all right. That is, if you change your mind, does that mean that you must not be much of a thinker. Or is the opposite true? That if you changed your mind, that’s evidence that you’re doing some good thinking? The answer is that it probably depends on how and why you changed your mind. So this talk will touch on the following: A change in my thinking about what philosophy can accomplish, a change in my thinking about moral theory, a change in my thinking about what one needs to do when engaging in ethics consults, a change in my thinking about abortion, and, finally, a change my thinking about physician facilitated death. Obviously, I’ve changed or revised my thinking a lot about a lot of things. What can I say?

This lecture is open to the public and will be held in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior), Chicago Campus. For those outside the Chicago area and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, a Zoom option is also available.
