Moral outrage subject of Brockport talk

Princeton University’s Gideon Rosen will talk Thursday about managing moral outrage through philosophy at the first in a series of talks hosted by the College at Brockport’s Center for Philosophic Exchange.

The lecture will be at 5 p.m. in McCue Auditorium at the college. Rosen will explore the relationship between emotion and reason, focusing on those emotions constituting moral blame, including guilt, resentment and indignation.

The talk is open to the public and free. Additional talks in the series include Paul Audi from the University of Rochester on Dec. 6 and Hilary Kornblith, from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst on March 14.
